SUSA: Webb up by 8%.

Survey USA has Webb at 52% and Allen at 44%. Wow. The poll was taken this weekend, from Friday through Sunday. Gallup also released a poll today showing Webb at 46% and Allen at 49%, with that poll having been taken last week, from Wednesday through Friday. I trust Gallup polling far more than Survey USA, but SUSA’s is more recent. SUSA’s poll also shows Amendment 1 (that Marshall/Newman Amendment) at only 42% right now, with an amazing 22% undecided. Those of us working the polls tomorrow will need to chat people up about Amendment 1.

  1. The Gallup poll seems suprising considering the othe polls. The survey poll is meaningless. Those numbers can’t be true. I think it will be close but I don’t think Webb will win. He needed to be leading to pull off the victory. No Gov or other race to pull him though.

  2. Well the polls over the past 2 days have given everyone cause for hope or despair.

    Last year SurveyUSA’s poll more closely approximated the race’s outcome than anyone else. Although I share some of proffer’s skepticism. I have a hard time seeing Webb winning with an 8% margin; anything is possible though.

    For what it’s worth, Rassmussen showed this race tied as of yesterday evening.
