In the latest poll conducted by Christopher Newport University’s Wason Center for Public Policy, incumbent Republican Scott Taylor leads his Democrat opponent in the 2nd district by 7%, 50 to 43%.
It seems voters are not bothered by the ‘scandal’ charging some of Taylor’s staff with putting fake signatures on petitions to get a third party candidate on the ballot. In Taylor’s 2nd Congressional 72% of those surveyed said they were aware of the charges but they made no difference in their vote.
Independent voters are voting for Taylor over his opponent by 8%, 50-42%. Among these independent voters 68% were aware of the ‘scandal’.
The 2nd district is heavily military and those voters strongly support Taylor, a former Navy Seal, by 22%.
