    Baucus is quite unpopular, especially with the MT Dems.

    •  The last poll I saw in February (2+ / 0-)

      Had Baucus' approval/disapproval ratings at 76/18 among Dems and 45/48 overall.  I'd hardly call that unpopular.  They also show him trouncing the only GOP front runners of Stapleton and Edmunds.

      Schweitzer's numbers were slightly better among Dems but he doesn't have the active infrastructure to compete against a well-funded incumbent. Though perhaps with his Gubernatorial name recognition he would be able to close that gap easily.

      Regardless, Schweitzer could not be more clear or consistent about is utter lack of any interest in ever serving in Congress.
