I gave money to the Herseth Campaign her first time out. Stephanie was the second netroots candidate to get big money
over the net from small donors. Ben Chandler in Kentucky was the first. It looks like Herseth is walking back into office this time around, so I'll be investing in the future locally. Herseth's strength registered across all regions of the state listed in the poll, with the lowest, 53 percent, in western South Dakota. Whalen, of Pine Ridge, had 31 percent there.
She attracted support from 34 percent of the Republicans surveyed and 89 percent of Democrats. Whalen was favored by 46 percent of Republicans - with 20 percent undecided.
Independents went to Herseth 71 percent to 18 percent, with the remainder undecided.
