Ford Leads in Tennessee...According to Ford

An internal poll conduced for US Senate candidate Harold Ford, Jr. shows the Congressman from Memphis leading his Republican opponent by two points (http://www.blackpolicy.org/black-races.php?s=TN).

The poll, conducted by Benenson Strategy Group, also shows Ford with a 55% favorable rating compared to GOP nominee and Chattanooga Mayor Bob Corker's 48%.

The survey is not necessarily out of step with other independent polls that showed Ford trailing Corker by 4 to 6 points.

Internal polls are used constantly by candidates to track the impact of recent ads, momentum and news stories.

Ford is going to make this race a squeeker. He is, by far, the best retail politician in the Congressional Black Caucus. It remains to be seen whether or not he can convince white swing voters to take the plunge. He is only working with a black base of 16%. It's tough to do in a Confederate State but it can be done.
