New Virginia Poll: Obama 47%-Willard 43%; Kaine 45%-Allen 44%


    Quinnipiac is out with a new Virginia poll this morning, and it has basically good news for the “blue team.”

    1. “For the first time in this election cycle, President Barack Obama inches ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the leading Republican candidate, 47 – 43 percent in Virginia…”

    2. “In the state’s hotly contested U.S. Senate race Democrat Tim Kaine has 45 percent to Republican George Allen’s 44 percent.”

    Also of note, “Romney has a commanding lead among likely Republican primary voters in the state’s no-Newt Gingrich presidential primary.” It’s too bad Santorum’s not on the ballot, because after his shellacking of Willard last night, my guess is that Rick would have an excellent chance of winning Virginia. Bummer.

      Remember how Virgil Goode wanted to make a comeback and run as the Constitution Party’s nominee?

      Wonder if that will come into play in this state? Might be worth a point or two drop on the R’s side, but then again, any R that would vote for a party and candidate that looney is liable to stay home on election day rather than vote for Mitt Romney (these are the crazed people who think Romney and Obama are one in the same).

      Then again, I don’t know anyone who’s talking about Goode, so we’ll have to wait and see if anyone even notices whether or not he gets in.
