    Here are the results of the latest Survey-USA polling in VA-09:

    Republicans Make Their Move in Virginia’s 9th District; GOP’s Griffith Pulls Even with 15-Term Incumbent Democrat Boucher: A dramatic reversal of fortune in Virginia’s 9th Congressional District, where Republican challenger Morgan Griffith appears to have awoken after 3 months of polling at 40% and today, 7 days until votes are counted, vaults into a tie with incumbent Democrat Rick Boucher, who had been sailing to a 16th term.

    In a SurveyUSA polling conducted exclusively for WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, it’s Griffith 47%, Boucher 46%, within the survey’s theoretical margin of sampling error. Griffith’s lead may or may not be statistically significant; the contest should be reported as even.

    I understand that Griffith at 47 % with Boucher at 46 % is a statistical tie, however, when was the last time anyone but a GOP sacrificial lamb made a run at Rick Boucher?  

    Anyone from VA-09 know what’s happening?  Losing VA-09 would NOT be good.

      Looking at ad buys the DCCC did not drop one dime into VA-09. They dropped over a million into VA-11, $100K in VA-02 and $150K in VA-05. If the race were a dead heat you would see the DCCC spending money to protect Boucher. It is not a dead heat and the experts know this so they are not going to waste money here.

      SUSA polls are garbage. Look at the ones of VA-05. Rick Boucher will be returning to Congress in 2011.
