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.

You forgot to mention that the same poll shows that Kagen actually had a larger lead in August, and that Gard has been closing the gap. It ain't over 'til it's over, and this is still a race we need to work like hell to win.

I've been tracking the huge independent expenditures in this race, and you can see them listed on my blog, Reform Dem.
