Minnick Lead Over Labrador Now 3%

Incumbent Rep. Walt Minnick’s lead over Republican Raul Labrador fell from 10 percentage points in mid-September to 3 percentage points late last week, says a poll commissioned by the Idaho Statesman and six other newspapers. The freshman Democrat’s lead is so narrow that it may not exist at all, because it falls within the poll’s 5-point margin of error. With Election Day just a week away, the nationalization of the race to control Congress may be helping Labrador in western Idaho’s strongly Republican 1st District, according to Boise State University political scientist Gary Moncrief/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.

Question: Does this mean that Raul Labrador is surging to victory?
