Minnick Tops Otter In Popularity

Here are the numbers: Crapo, 59 percent favorable, 17 percent unfavorable; Risch, 49 percent favorable, 19 percent unfavorable; Minnick, 47 percent favorable, 20 percent unfavorable; Simpson, 56 percent favorable, 8 percent unfavorable. For Otter, the comparable figures were 47 percent favorable, 35 percent unfavorable/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: How can you explain the fact that Repub Otter's unfavorable numbers are almost twice as much as freshman Demo congressman Minnick's? Also: Otter is hinting at a run for re-election. How vulnerable will he be in a Repub primary?
