Incumbents comfortably ahead in commisioner races?

I haven’t spent much time talking about the races for Carver County Commissioner.  Clearly, though, there has been an effort (much of it partisan-driven) to replace incumbents Gayle Degler, Randy Maluchnik, and Jim Ische.  Challengers Neil Kennedy, Jay Swenson, and Bruce Schwictenberg have run well-organized campaigns against the incumbents.

The Maluchnik campaign released internal polling last night that shows all three incumbent with 10 point (or more) leads in each of the races.    It’s obviously internal polling, so take it as you will, but I have to admit the magnitude of the leads seems a bit surprising, given the energy of the challengers’ campaigns and the general national mood.  Although I think all three incumbents stand a good chance of winning, I anticipated all three races to be closer.  It will be interesting to see if the results on November 2 track with these polling numbers.
