New Poll: Rigell 41.5%-Nye 41.0%


    Based on their less-than-stellar past performance, I can’t say that I’m exactly a big fan of Christopher Newport University polling.  With that caveat, a new poll by that outfit finds the 2nd Congressional District race to be essentially a dead heat (Scott Rigell 41.5%-Glenn Nye 41.0%-Undecided 12.4%-Kenny Golden 5.1%). The problem is, undecideds usually break for the challenger over the incumbent, especially when they’re angry like they are now.

    Still, the Nye campaign is touting this poll, writing, “We’ve known from the start this race is going to come down to the wire and it has.” I certainly can’t disagree with that statement.
