We Ask America was the only published pollster when Joe Walsh upset Melissa Bean in 2010. Its findings showed Walsh has a chance.
Now it comes up with recent findings that Walsh is trailing Tammy Duckworth.
Here is the text:
Illinois 8 – Democrat Tammy Duckworth vs. Republican incumbent Joe Walsh
As we’ve profiled before, this race pits Duckworth, a disabled Iraqi war veteran, against Tea Party favorite Joe Walsh.
While Duckworth hasn’t proven to be a great candidate, she has a distinct advantage in this re-drawn district by running against a guy who seems to enjoy being a lightning rod for controversy.
Walsh surprised many by keeping this race competitive as long as he did, but Duckworth’s campaign has taken advantage of Walsh’s without-exception pro-life views while whacking him for not paying child support.
That one-two punch seems to have pushed Walsh over the edge where he now may be in a free fall:
Poll type: Automated Date: October 28, 2012 – Participants: 1,010 Likely Voters – Margin of Error: ± 3.1%
|Tammy Duckworth||Joe Walsh|
Whether it gets worse for Mr. Walsh before Election Day is anyone’s guess, but Tammy Duckworth now appears to be in line for a win on November 6.
