Rasmussen: Coburn, Fallin with big leads

Rasmussen has released two polls in recent days covering Oklahoma's gubernatorial and senatorial contests. Perhaps the Senate race (at least) does not qualify as a "contest"...

Senate: Coburn (R) vs. Rogers (D) vs. Wallace (I) vs. Dwyer (I)

Rasmussen Reports 2010 Oklahoma Senate Poll (link)

Tom Coburn (R) - 68% [67%]
Jim Rogers (D) - 26% [24%]
Some Other Candidate - 2% [3%]
Undecided - 4% [5%]

Poll of  500 likely voters, June 30th, 2010, with a MoE of +/- 4.5%  -  leaders in bold. [Poll in brackets is of 500 likely voters, August 26th, 2010, with a MoE of +/- 4.5%].

Governor: Fallin (R) vs. Askins (D)
Rasmussen Reports 2010 Oklahoma Gubernatorial Poll (link)

Mary Fallin (R) - 60% [52%]
Jari Askins (D) - 34% [37%]
Some Other Candidate - 1% [4%]
Undecided - 5% [7%]

Poll of  500 likely voters, September 23rd, 2010, with a MoE of +/- 4.5%  -  leaders in bold. [Poll in brackets is of 500 likely voters, August 26th, 2010, with a MoE of +/- 4.5%].
I'm not entirely sure why Rasmussen asked "some other candidate", given the fact that only Fallin and Askins will be on the ballot - there will be no other candidates...

Most stunning in the Gubernatorial numbers is Fallin's favorability rating, when compared to Askins. 70% of those polled have a favorable opinion of Mary Fallin, and only 26% have an unfavorable view (making for a +44% favorable percentage). Askins has 51% favorable, and 41% unfavorable (making for a +10% favorable percentage).
