This poll was paid for by Oberweis and was done August 25-27 among 1340 likely voters. A look to what we will be getting from PPP the next two weeks.

We surprisingly haven’t received much from Louisiana this year, so that will be nice for a change. As many of you know we were supposed to get a new poll from Kentucky today from CNN at 4pm.
