Another SurveyUSA poll gives Hurt a big lead
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.
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.
