This is awesome news if this poll is to be believed. WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, Virginia just released results of their last poll, and it's a doozy!!
From the Tom Perriello Campaign:
November 3, 2008—Ivy, VA—A new poll shows that Tom Perriello has gained considerable momentum and is now within striking distance of a historic upset against Rep. Virgil Goode. The SurveyUSA poll, conducted for WDBJ7, shows that the race now stands at Goode 50% and Perriello at 47%, within the poll's margin of error.
"This poll shows what we've been hearing on the trail everyday: that people are ready to leave behind the old politics of fear and division of Congressman Goode, and hungry for Tom Perriello's solutions for the economy and commitment to Virginia values. We are so close to bringing integrity and leadership back to the fifth district and we need everyone to show up to polls tomorrow to make that vision a reality," said Jessica Barba, communications director for the Perriello campaign.
Perriello has gained significant support despite weeks of negative, false attack ads by Rep. Goode and national Republicans, one of which was pulled last week from WDBJ7 for containing false claims. Perriello has been campaigning alongside his "Election Express" RV throughout the district over the past few days.
This is a great development, and I couldn't wait to share it with you.
Out with the old, in with the new!
