Incumbent Bill Young opens up 17-point lead over Jessica Ehrlich in congressional district 13
Whatever momentum Democratic challenger Jessica Ehrlich was building for her bid to unseat Republican incumbent Bill Young has come to a halt, according to new poll numbers taken after media reports raised questions about Ehrlich’s work history.
According to a new survey conducted by St. Pete Polls, Young is at 53.9% in the polls, while Ehrlich is at 37.3% among “active” voters defined as those who have voted in at least one election during the last four years.
For Young, these new poll numbers represent an improvement since the last time the district was polled. A week ago, Young led Ehrlich, 49% to 40%.
Since then, questions have arisen about Ehrlich’s work history and voting record.
The automated phone poll was conducted on October 15 and has a 3.6% margin of error.
