Someone is polling Corker.
Our loyal RTP band of tipsters have informed us that someone is currently in the field, polling about the 2018 U.S. Senate race.
Is it Corker doing a poll to assess how bad he screwed up by turning against Trump? Is it Blackburn, considering a race with or without Corker on the ballot in 2018? Is it Diane Black, trying to see if running for Senate is a better bet than running for governor? Is it to determine if 4 out of 5 dentists recommend brushing after each election?
Judging from the questions asked, we have a pretty good indication who it is. But we will hold our theory (we know, a first for Rocky Top) until we get some confirmation.
Until then, feel free to speculate among yourselves. In the interim, here is a suggested sample poll question to whet your appetite:
Would you be more or less likely to vote for Bob Corker if you knew he was (ROTATE):
a. a weasel?
b. a crook?
d. Secretary of Anything?
e. Don’t know/refused.
