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.
