Notwithstanding John McCain’s strong showing in the state, Old Dominion voters continue to favor Mark Warner over Jim Gilmore in the Senate race:
Democrat Mark Warner still has a comfortable lead over Republican Jim Gilmore in the race for Virginia’s seat in the U.S. Senate. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Virginia voters found Warner up 55% to 39%.
The gap was slightly larger last month when Warner led Gilmore 57% to 37%.
Warner dominates among unaffiliated voters. He leads Gilmore 65% to 21% among those not affiliated with either Republicans or Democrats.
Warner is viewed favorably by 65% and unfavorably by 32%. Gilmore’s numbers are 51% favorable and 42% favorable.
For the moment at least, it appears that there are no McCain coat tails in Virginia.
