Republicans Leading In Three Virginia House Races

Three separate polls show Republicans leading in House races for seats currently held by Democrats:

There’s a new batch of polls in Virginia’s four most interesting House races.

“On Monday, September 27, ccAdvertising completed surveys to voters in four key Congressional districts in Virginia. These surveys focused on the competitive Congressional races as well as current national issues. The surveys were conducted to both landline phones and mobile phones.”

In the 2nd Congressional District, Republican Scott Rigell has a commanding lead over Democrat Glenn Nye in the race for Congress of over 14 percent. When asked whom voters will choose on Election Day, 48.6 percent are supporting Rigell, while 34.5 percent are supporting Nye and 16.9 percent are undecided.

In the 5th District, Republican Robert Hurt would defeat incumbent Democrat Tom Perriello by approximately 16 percent. A 51.1 percent majority of respondents support Hurt while 34.7 percent support Democrat Tom Perriello and 14.1 percent are undecided.


In Virginia’s 11th District, Republican Keith Fimian has a five and one half percent lead over Democrat Gerry Connolly. When asked whom voters support, 42.2 percent favor Fimian, 36.7 percent support Connolly and 21.1 percent are undecided.

Meanwhile, the poll also surveyed voters in the 9th District and found incumbent Democrat Rick Boucher with only a three point lead.

There are high numbers of undecided voters in all three polls so it’s unclear that this means a lot right now. However, it’s clear that the GOP has a good chance of huge gains in Virginia on Election Night.

    Connolly is a moonbat and was the king of tax increases in Fairfax County. Whoever is funding his tv ads is backing a loser. But I hope they keep it up. Better they pour money down a rathole than back someone who might win.
