Polls Show Some Local Races Are Tight As Election Day Approaches
(CBS) – In Campaign 2010, from the Jersey Shore to the big suburban counties in Pennsylvania, the tightness of several congressional races is causing a lot of campaign advisers to lose sleep.
We begin with the brawl in the South Jersey third district. A non-partisan public poll, Stockton/Zogby, puts Jon Runyan ahead by a few points over incumbent Democrat John Adler for the first time.
In the Bucks County race between Mike Fitzpatrick and incumbent Democrat Patrick Murphy the surveys average a small lead for Fitzpatrick.
In Delaware County, Republican Pat Meehan appears to be ahead by surveys in a tight race with Bryan Lentz. But wait a minute, most of the surveys have a margin of error of plus or minus five percent so the current picture with slight GOP leads could change by the day, up or down.
No public polls are out on the Montgomery County election between Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz and the GOP’s Dee Adcock. The debates are over except for one. Meehan and Lentz have their final debate tonight at Neumann University.
