I normally ignore the Rasmussen Republican Polling Company, but this one is too good to pass up.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Virginia Voters shows Obama drawing 49% support to Romney’s 43%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate in the race, while three percent (3%) are undecided…

With Santorum as the Republican nominee, Obama holds a 51% to 43% lead. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

If even a Republican hack polling company says Obama’s leading handily in Virginia, I think it’s fair to say Obama’s looking good in the Commonwealth. 🙂

    I think the poll is good news, but to make sure the numbers keep moving in the right direction, we’ve got to keep the GOP candidates in the game until their convention (so that they continue to destroy each other). If Ron Paul does well in Virginia on Super Tuesday, it may encourage him to stay in the race longer (not that he is showing any signs of leaving it yet). So, I plan to vote for Paul in the GOP primary. I haven’t seen any online movements to do this and am wondering why not…
