Anti-incumbent split could save Florida liberal

Freshman Rep. Alan Grayson, one of the most outspoken and liberal members of Congress, may be wearing out his welcome in his moderate central Florida district.

In one of the nation’s most closely watched House races, the controversial Democrat trails Republican challenger Daniel Webster by 7 percentage points – 43 percent to 36 percent – in an independent poll released Tuesday by Sunshine State News and conducted by Voter Survey Service.

Also troubling for Mr. Grayson is the 51 percent of voters who hold an unfavorable view of him.

“The only real path to victory for Grayson is to vilify Webster and hope third-party candidates become an alternative choice for the anti-incumbent vote, which is now being split three ways,” said Jim Lee, president of Voter Survey Service.
