A new survey in Nebraska confirmed that Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson has his work cut out for him in 2012.

The automated poll, conducted by Republican firm Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies, showed Attorney General Jon Bruning ahead of Nelson, 52 percent to 38 percent. Bruning has already announced his candidacy.

Nelson also trailed Treasurer-elect Don Stenberg by 6 points. Stenberg lost to Nelson by 2 points in their 2000 Senate race, and he announced days after being elected treasurer last month that he was considering another challenge to Nelson.

Another troubling finding for Nelson is that at least 80 percent of respondents said they had heard of both potential opponents, taking away any name identification advantage for the two-term Senator.
