I’m not sure what to make of SurveyUSA polls this cycle, as some of them have seemed wacky (e.g., in Virginia’s 5th CD). With that caveat, check out these new results:
In an election for US House of Representatives in Virginia’s 9th Congressional District today, 09/30/10, incumbent Democrat Rick Boucher defeats Republican State House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith 53% to 38%, according to this latest exclusive WDBJ-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA.
Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released 4 weeks ago, little has changed; Boucher up 3 points, Griffith is down 2. In addition to maintaining a commanding lead among women, Boucher now leads among men and voters under age 50, groups where he previously trailed.
If true, it looks like Rick Boucher is coasting to reelection over carpetbagger and climate change skeptic Morgan Griffith. I find it particularly interesting that Boucher is gaining ground on Griffith; could this be yet another indication of what appears to be a more favorable climate for Democrats as the election nears? Oh, wait, hasn’t the corporate media been telling us for months that the Democrats are doomed, DOOMED they tell us?!? Yeah, and we must always believe the corporate media! (snark)
