This same poll showed Ms. Love trailing by 15 points back in June, so she's come a long way in her bid to become the first black Republican female in the U.S. Congress: "Love found the poll results encouraging. 'Every credible poll has us ahead, which means the truth is resonating,' she said. 'I've had a lot of things thrown at me. I'm sure that people will continue to try to throw as much as they possibly can at me. Utahns are savvy; they're smart. They know what rings true.'"
