Survey USA has just front-paged an astonishing poll showing Rand Paul‘s support plummeting by double digits, and Conway closing the gap to a statistical tie. The internals are especially fascinating… (and admittedly controversial.)

So what do you think? Is this poll a massive outlier, or a straw in the wind? I think it’s the first indicator of a massive national shift. The momentum is turning, thanks to a long, slow build-up of Tea party negatives that has suddenly reached critical mass. And I’m fairly certain this poll is not an outlier… it’s a harbinger of things to come.
Dems have begun deploying their massive ad buys in critical markets. Voters are paying attention. The GOP base is grumbling and dispirited by the Pledge to America, which just doesn’t look crazy enough to suit them. And Tea Party candidates all over the country are making the fatal mistake of telling us what they really think. When we do the post-game analysis we’re going to say, “Yup, the last week in September… that was when it all started turning around.”
Something is happening. Hold onto your hats.
