Clark, the independent Tea Partier, has been accusing the Republicans of dirty tricks against his campaign. But for now, he is only registering at slightly above an asterisk in the polls that include him.

Interestingly, a different poll from early August, by Republican pollster Ayres McHenry and commissioned by the conservative group American Action Fund, put Hurt ahead by the much narrower margin of 49%-43%, with Clark not included.
