New Poll Shows Comstock Leading Wexton in Virginia’s 10th District

A new poll conducted by Rep. Barbara Comstock’s (R-VA) campaign shows that the Virginia congresswoman is leading her Democratic challenger, state Sen. Jennifer Wexton.

According to the poll, Comstock is leading Wexton, 48 – 47, among voters. Another 5 percent of respondents said they were still undecided.

The poll was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates and “surveyed 400 likely voters from Oct. 6-8 with 41 percent of interviews conducted via cell phone. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.”

According to Roll Call:

“In its polling memo to the campaign, McLaughlin notes that Comstock is in better shape now than she was at the same point in 2016. This is the first time the Comstock campaign has released internal numbers in either cycle, and it comes amidst a narrative that Comstock, a two-term Republican, is facing troubling re-election prospects in a district Hillary Clinton won by 10 points in 2016. Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales rates the race Tilts Democratic.”

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and other outside groups have targeted Comstock’s district since she was first elected in 2014.

Despite the Democrats best efforts, Comstock has twice been able to defy the odds and defeat her Democratic challengers on Election Day.
