In today’s Chron, R.G. Ratcliffe writes that “a new poll indicates U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is in danger of having the bottom fall out of her campaign.”  R.G. is referring to the Rasmussen poll that came out yesterday that has Guv Dude at 44%, Hutch at 29% and Debra Medina at 16%.

Has Hutch run a lousy campaign – nope!   She’s just not rabid like Dude.   Should Hutch have taken the rabid approach earlier in this campaign?  Nah – she doesn’t have the look.
