The latest poll on the U.S. Senate race gives us a clear understanding of where things are headed on election day. Just kidding. It tells us nothing. It's just a cacophony of statistical noise.

Today's poll:

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Rossi picking up 48% support, while Murray earns 47% of the vote when leaners are included. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
