Republican Rasmussen Reports: McAuliffe 45%-Cuccinelli 38%


    Another new Virginia governor’s race poll is out, this time by Republican Rasmussen Reports (aka, “RRR,” but not the “RRR Poll” Cuccinelli’s campaign thinks is so funny to mock “PPP” with).

    Democrat Terry McAuliffe has opened up a seven-point lead over Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as the Virginia gubernatorial race enters the post-Labor Day stretch.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Virginia Voters finds McAuliffe with 45% support to Cuccinelli’s 38%. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate, while 10% remain unsure.

    I guess this is good, except for one problem: I wouldn’t trust Rasmussen as far as I could throw it. On the other hand, if a totally biased Republican pollster has McAuliffe up 7 points, that can’t be good news for Cuccinelli and Company. Anyway, I can’t wait for Chris “Swift Boats” LaCivita to pull his “RRR” bull**** with Republican Rasmussen Reports (the real “RRR”). Duhhhhhhh.

    P.S. So far, the only real poll (not counting Roanoke College, which is not a real poll) since April which has shown Cooch ahead has been…none. That’s right: 9 real polls, 9 leads for Terry McAuliffe. #CuccinelliFAIL
