Dead Heat in Two-Way, Three-Way Races in VA
We are nine days into 2013 and we already have our first poll conflict of the year. Yesterday, Public Policy Polling claimed terry McAuliffe held a 5% lead in a two-way race and an 8% lead in a three-way race. This morning, Quinnipiac University shows a much closer race in both cases.
GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA (Quinnipiac)
Terry McAuliffe (D) 40%
Ken Cuccinelli (R) 39%
GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA w/Bolling (PPP)
Terry McAuliffe (D) 34%
Ken Cuccinelli (R) 34%
Bill Bolling (I) 13%
This poll was done January 4-7 among 1134 registered voters. This is the second poll showing Bolling well behind both Cuccinelli and McAuliffe which starts to beg the question about the polling Bolling was bragging about in his statements last week claiming he was encouraged about. Bolling’s problem appears to be that even after seven years of being a Lt. Governor, nobody even knows who he is. In this poll, 72% of REPUBLICANS haven;t heard enough about him to have an opinion. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.
