WPTV NEWS – Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is leading his Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy by nine points, according to a new FLDemocracy/WPTV/ TCPalm poll released Thursday.
Among likely voters surveyed, 51 percent support West and 42 percent back Murphy. Eight percent are undecided.
The same poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP), found Mitt Romney leading President Barack Obama in District 18 by a 50 percent to 45 percent margin.
The battle for the 18 th congressional district, which includes Martin, St. Lucie and northern Palm Beach counties, is one of the closest watched races in the country. The race has been characterized by a flood of advertising–most of which is coming from West who has outspent his Democratic challenger by 4-1.
Allen West feels very good in his district right now and told Mark Levin that he will definitely be bringing home a “W” in November. Listen to the full interview below:
