Pawlenty's polling problem

Nate Silver:

Tim Pawlenty’s name recognition has improved more than any other Republican candidate since the start of the year — it’s increased to 49 percent from 39 percent, according to Gallup — but that hasn’t translated into any additional support in the horse race polling, where his numbers have been stuck at about 4 percent all year.

For a long time, T-Paw's been making the argument that his poor polling is due to low name recognition.

But that excuse won't last long if this continues.
