Kagen, Gard in virtual dead heat
A new independent poll done by a national firm gives Dem Steve Kagen a 2% lead over Repub John Gard in the 8th District House race. They've surveyed 30 districts across the country, and you can see a summary of results here.
A knowledgeable pollster friend says that although it's an automated survey, it's done by two experienced, reputable pollsters and has a sample size of nearly 1000. So it's pretty reliable.
