One week before Burr releases internal poll

"I think it's ridiculous to go through hypothetical head-to-heads," Burr said.

"The next election is not even something I'm thinking about. Nor should I, until I know who I'm running against," he said.

Burr said he hasn't run any of his own polls yet.

"Why should I poll?" he asked.

Re: Quick Hits

Roll Call is mistaken. This poll did not come from The Richard Burr Committee. It came from Carolina Strategy Group.

Sigh.

As Roll Call says, Burr released the poll. That means Burr paid for it, not that he conducted it.

Carolina Strategy Groups' founder Shumaker happens to be Burr's top campaign adviser anyway.

As for all of Burr's previous "too early to poll" bluster, that's naive. Of course the very first time he was finally ahead in an internal, they released it to press. That's GOP SOP.

Deny public opinion exists until you can buy a poll you like.
