New Poll: 5th CD Race a Statistical Tie?


    Is the 5th CD race between Tom Perriello, Jeff Clark, and that other guy (Rob, Rob, Rob…whatever his name is – ha) a statistical tie?  According to a newpoll, it looks that way.

    The new poll, conducted by Benenson Strategy Group for Perriello’s campaign, showed Hurt leading, 46 percent to 44 percent, with independent candidate Jeffrey Clark picking up 4 percent, and 5 percent undecided. The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4.9 percent…

    So much for this race being non-competitive.  I urge everyone to get involved in helping Perriello pull this one out. Go Tom!

    In other news, the cowardly Republican candidate has backed out of yet another debate, this time in Danville on October 26.  How do you spell “pathetic loser?” H-U-R-T.
