Heller leading Cappelli?



A 9/14-18 poll released by the Democratic HD 52 Bill Heller campaign shows him leading Republican Angelo Cappelli by 8 points. The Schroth & Associates poll (they work for the Times, along with the Polling Co) also contends that with more "information" Heller's lead grows to 31 points. The Pollster's memo:

"Capelli struggled to gain relevance in the Republican-leaning, but socially moderate district with his extremist positions on many social issues such as his opposition to embryonic stem cell research, his support for semiautomatic assault weapons, his opposition to treating violent crimes against homosexuals as “hate crimes” and his support for “abstinence only” sex education in Florida schools." Apparently that extra info comes from a Christian Coalition questionnaire.
