Donnelly leading in early poll

Joe Donnelly has a 10 point lead over Chris Chocola in a recent poll taken by the Donnelly campaign. From the South Bend Tribune:

The poll, which was taken for the Donnelly campaign on July 10-13 by Cooper & Secrest Associates, a national polling firm based in Alexandria, Va., asked 504 likely election voters whether they would vote for Donnelly or Chocola if the election were held today.

The result: Forty-eight percent said they would vote for Donnelly, 38 percent said they would vote for Chocola and 14 percent said they were undecided. The margin for error is plus or minus 4.4 percent.

According to the Cooper & Secrest release, the poll also showed Chocola with a 34 percent positive job performance rating and a 60 percent negative rating.

Now before popping the corks on the champagne... lets remember this is one poll and there is a LOT of time between now and November... and we have yet to see all the negative attack ads run. It is going to get alot worse before it gets better so lets keep on fighting and Vote for Joe in November!!!
