Griffith Has Some Work to Do

Last week WDBJ7 in Roanoke released the results of a Survey USA Poll showing incumbent congressman Tom Perriello trailing his challenger, State Senator Robert Hurt by 23 points in Virginia's 5th District. The next day, WDBJ released the results of a Survey USA Poll in the 9th District race between incumbent Rick Boucher and challenger Morgan Griffith. The results are reversed with Boucher holding a 13 point lead over Griffith.

Most observers knew this was going to be an uphill battle for Griffith. Boucher's lead is not insurmountable but Griffith has a lot of work to do between now and Election Day to make this a race.
