PPP: Webb 49%-Allen 45%; Webb 49%-Cooch 39%


    These poll results are actually a lot better than I thought they’d be, with Jim Webb leading George Allen (49%-45%), Bill Bolling (49%-38%), and Ken Kook-inelli (49%-39%). And if Jim Webb doesn’t run?

    [Tim] Kaine would begin with a 50-44 edge over Allen, 48-41 over Bolling, and 50-39 over Cuccinelli. Perriello would trail Allen, 42-47, and Bolling, 41-42, and he would only lead Cuccinelli, 44-41.

    The bottom line, according to PPP, is that “[w]ith Barack Obama looking good to start out the 2012 cycle in Virginia, and now Jim Webb and Tim Kaine joining him, the Republican victories in 2009 and 2010 could be more a blip than 2006 and 2008 were for Democrats.” I’ll take it. Now, if Republicans will only do us a big favor and nominate the Cooch!

    P.S. In other news, Mark Warner’s at 54%-32% approval/disapproval, Bob McDonnell’s at 44%-36%, Jim Webb’s at 43%-37%.  Also, Cooch has a 31%-39% favorable/unfavorable rating, George Allen’s at 40%-41%, Tim Kaine’s at 43%-40%, Bill Bolling’s at 20%-25%, and Tom Perriello’s at 22%-32%. No numbers on “Sideshow Bob,” unfortunately, or on Corey Stewart.
