TENNESSEE….Can someone tell me what’s going on in the Tennessee senate race? Zogby has Corker ahead by 6 points and CNN has Corker up by 8 points. But Benenson has Ford ahead by 5 points and the DSSC (via email) has Ford up by 6 points.

All of these polls were conducted within the last three or four days, but they span an astonishing range of 14 points. Does anybody actually have any idea what’s going on there?
