Etheridge Falls Behind in New Poll

North Carolina Congressman Bob Etheridge is in some hot water for his manhandling of some students doing a documentary in Washington DC. The video has gone viral and has apparently damaged his credibility quite a bit. According to a recently completed poll, the people in his district were not too impressed.

Ellmers (R): 39
Etheridge (D): 38
Rose (Libertarian): 12

Needless to say, polling under 40% is nearly political suicide for an incumbent. Ellmers is relatively unknown and Etheridge seems to have alienated so many voters that double digits are willing to go third party. Yikes.

Good....the non-partisan but hyepr-detailed Cook Political Report had the district as 'Solid D'.

Now Ellers has a fighting chance in what would've been an unwinnable district.
