AL-02: Another Poll Shows Bright Leading by 10

Capital Survey Research Center (8/6-7,11, likely voters):

Bobby Bright (D): 47
Jay Love (R): 37
(MoE: ±4.4%)

More great numbers for Bright, and they confirm the spread of a recent Anzalone-Liszt internal (conducted just days before this poll) which had Bright leading Love by 50-40.

Love has countered with his own internal poll showing him leading Bright by 41-39. Those numbers may very well have been accurate snapshot of the race, but Love's poll was conducted in the immediate afterglow of his run-off victory against Harri Ann Smith, and before Bright's Montgomery and Dothan ad buys had sunken in.

An excerpt from the polling memo is available below the fold.

Go Bright
This is just what I like seeing out of good candidates who deserve to win.

Waffle House celebrated its 50th anniversary and my steak celebrated its 25th-Larry the Cable Guy

is this independent polling or on behalf of Bright/Dems?

But the CSRC polls for the AEA, which is a staunch Dem ally.

They have a reputation for accuracy, though.

Bright used Anzalone-Liszt recently, so I would assume this is an independant group.
SSP is usually good at tagging polls as internals if they are.

I'd like to see
the cross tabs for self identification. Either way this is excellent news.  

Despite their echoing Anzalone-Liszt, I'm taking this with an extra grain of salt without the details.

I can imagine that he has quite a few Republicans ("Bright Republicans) supporting him, thanks to his campaign reaching out to be bipartisan
