Perriello-Hurt: Either a blowout or a close race

A new SurveyUSA poll has Republican Robert Hurt comfortably ahead of Democratic incumbent Tom Perriello in their race for the Fifth District seat in Congress, though the numbers are vastly different than those in another poll released recently by a Republican-leaning outfit.

SurveyUSA has Hurt ahead of Perriello by a 61 percent-35 percent margin, ahead of the 23-point lead that the polling firm gave Hurt in July. An American Action Forum poll released two weeks ago had the race much tighter, with Hurt at 49 percent to 43 percent for Perriello.
