Another SurveyUSA poll gives Hurt a big lead

Is it an outlier? Or is all the other polling showing the Robert Hurt-Tom Perriello race in the Fifth District to be tight wrong?

Another SurveyUSA poll gives the Republican challenger Hurt a big lead over the Democratic incumbent Perriello. The 58 percent-35 percent lead in the most recent poll, released on Tuesday, is identical to numbers from SurveyUSA a month ago.

Tea Party independent Jeff Clark is a distant third with 4 percent in the polling.

Other polls of voters in the Fifth have the race anywhere from a dead heat to a slight lead for Hurt.

SurveyUSA consistently showed Perriello down big in his ultimately successful 2008 campaign against then-incumbent Virgil Goode before Perriello pulled the big upset on Election Day.
