New Quinnipiac poll: Brown up 12

In what appears to be the best confirmation yet that indeed Mike DeWine will be mailed in by the RNC, a new Quinnipiac poll released today shows Congressman Sherrod Brown (D-OH13) with a twelve point advantage over incumbent Mike DeWine, leading 53-41. This is a marked improvement for Brown, who was statistically tied (45-44) with DeWine in the last Quinnipiac poll.

Following the breaking of the story that the RNC was cutting DeWine loose, RNC chair Ken Mehlman put the washer into hyperspin and immediately denied that DeWine would be losing the support of the RNC, issuing a press release indicating the contrary.

Now one must wonder if Mr. Mehlman will be eating crow for dinner... or maybe DeWine's cooked goose.
