I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Virginia Voters Lose Faith In Obama, Might Want George Allen Back

The latest Public Policy Polling poll of Virginia voters reveals several interesting results:

-49% of likely voters for this fall say they oppose Barack Obama’s plans for health care, while just 38% are in support. This generally tracks PPP’s polling on the issue both nationally and in Colorado and North Carolina, two states that he won last fall along with Virginia. His overall approval rating in the state is 47% with 49% of voters disapproving.

-Could a George Allen comeback be in the future? 50% of voters in the state have a favorable opinion of him to 38% unfavorable. Compared to the other politicians on this poll that makes him less popular than Mark Warner and Bob McDonnell, but more popular than Barack Obama, Tim Kaine, and Jim Webb. 31% of the electorate says they would definitely vote for Allen if he made a future run for office, while 36% say they definitely would not. 31% said they would consider it depending on the circumstances.

A George Allen comeback ? Stranger things have happened.

    I don’t think it’d be that strange. But for GWB’s waning popularity, Allen would’ve won that race (he only lost by 8000 votes).
