These House polls have me gasping, “Whoa!” more often than Keanu Reeves:
A new OnMessage Inc. poll conducted for Republican Bill Flores’ campaign shows him ahead of Rep. Chet Edwards (D), 55 percent to 36 percent. The poll of 400 likely voters was taken Sept. 19-20 and had a margin of error of 4.9 points.
Presume, for the sake of argument, that because it’s a GOP poll, it’s heavily favored for Flores. You can take seven points off his total, add seven points to Edwards’s total, and it’s still a 48-43 GOP lead.
