Sheila Simon releases polling numbers — two months later

SHARE Sheila Simon releases polling numbers — two months later

In politics, what good is a two month old poll? Not much, but Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon must have missed the memo.

Capitol Fax reports that today, Simon, who is running for comptroller, released a numbers from a poll that was taken by Lake Research Partners — in January.

It shows her trailing veteran GOP incumbent Judy Baar Topinka, although it’s only by 7 percent (39-32).

The poll shows that 29 percent of those questioned were undecided. But then again, these numbers are two months old, so who knows where the numbers are now.
