Poll shows Bright with 12-point lead

Freshman U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright, a Democrat who was mayor of Montgomery, is leading Republican Martha Roby by 12 points, according to a poll conducted by Greenberg, Quinlan, Rosner. The poll of 400 likely voters shows Bright with a 51-39 lead.
Bright and Roby, a member of the Montgomery city council, are competing for the 2nd Congressional District.
The poll was conducted Oct. 9 through Oct. 12 and has a margin of error of 4.9 percent.
In two previous polls by the same firm, Bright was leading by 9 points.
Roby was ahead of Bright by two points, within the margin of error, according to a recent internal Republican poll reported by The Huffington Post.
Roby also easily outpaced the incumbent in the most recent fundraising period.
