Holy moly II: Independent poll shows McNerney leading Pombo

A new poll shows congressional District 11 Democratic challenger Jerry McNerney beating incumbent Republican Richard Pombo by 2 percentage points: 48 to 46 percent.

The poll was conducted by a Majority Watch, a project of RT Strategies and Constituent Dynamics, and does not appear at first blush to be connected to either campaign.

The poll was conducted Oct. 24-26 with 983 likely voters and margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent points.
