With just under four days until the 6/8 Virginia Democratic primary, we FINALLY have some new public polling – by Roanoke College. See below for highlights:

  • For governor, it’s Terry McAuliffe 48%-Jennifer Carroll Foy 11%-Jennifer McClellan 9%-Justin Fairfax 5%-Lee Carter 1% (Undecided is 27%)
  • Including who people say they already voted for, Roanoke College recalculates the governor’s race as: McAuliffe 49%-Carroll Foy 11%-McClellan 9%-Fairfax 5%-Carter 1% (Undecided is 24%)
  • For LG, it’s Hala Ayala 15%-Sam Rasoul 9%-Mark Levine 7%-Andria McClellan 7%-Sean Perryman 3%-Xavier Warren 3% (still 49% undecided, though, so who the heck knows?!?)
  • Including who people say they already voted for, Roanoke College recalculates this LG’s race as: Ayala 16%-Rasoul 11%-Levine 7%-McClellan 7%-Perryman 3%-Warren 2% (Undecided still 45%, which is wild considering the election is in  <100 hours!)
  • For AG, Mark Herring leads 49%-20% over Jay Jones, with 31% still undecided.
