Allen West Losing By Nine Points in Reelection Battle

Firebrand Florida Rep. Allen West is losing his reelection fight by a 9-point margin to Democrat Patrick Murphy, according to a poll taken for the Democratic group House Majority PAC.

The survey, taken by the firm Garin-Hart-Yang Research and shared by a source with POLITICO, found Murphy leading West, 52 percent to 43 percent.

There's been a dribble of conflicting polling information coming out of the South Florida race lately: West released a poll last week showing him ahead of Murphy by 9 points, while adifferent GOP poll found Murphy up by 4 points.

    I am shocked, shocked by the fact that I cannot trust what politicians or their pollsters say.
