Survey USA: Challenger Chabot Waxes Incumbent Driehaus

I’m beginning to enjoy these Survey USA/FDL polls. Yesterday they showed incumbent Vic Snyder trailing challenger Tim Griffin by 17 points. By the end of the day, Snyder was out of the race. Today they show former Congressman Steve Chabot – who lost to Steve Driehaus in a close racetrouncing him in the rematch:

If there were an election for US House of Representatives today, and the only two candidates on the ballot were Democrat Steve Driehaus and Republican Steve Chabot, who would you vote for?

Steve Driehaus (D) 39%
Steve Chabot (R ) 56%
Undecided 5%

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as President?

Approve 42%
Disapprove 55%
Not Sure 3%

Don’t expect Driehaus to flee like Snyder did yesterday. Driehaus is a freshman, so he’ll certainly stick and fight. But considering the flak he’s already taken in support of Obamacare, it may make him somewhat more reluctant to vote for it again – assuming the bill comes up for a final vote. Then again, he may already have resigned himself to the loss – in which case he’ll stick to Pelosi like glue.
