Although Feingold usually receives support in the single digits in opinion polls featuring various potential Democratic presidential candidates, he remains highly popular among Democratic grassroots activists. Many of Feingold’s supporters blame his low results in scientific polling on poor name recognition. Feingold has consistently polled ahead of other potential Democratic presidential candidates who haven’t run a national race before.
Feingold and other members of the Wisconsin congressional delegation agreed to make their annual financial disclosure forms available to The Associated Press, ahead of next month’s official release by Congress. By his own rules, Feingold’s next salary increase won’t happen until 2011, should he win a fourth term to the Senate - unless he takes a higher-paying job in the meantime. Feingold is considering a run for the presidency in 2008.
