In addition to showing Bob McDonnell ahead of Creigh Deeds, the latest Mason-Dixon poll also shows the Republican candidates for Lt. Governor and Attorney General leading their opponents:
Virginia’s Republican candidates for lieutenant governor and attorney general hold sizable leads over their Democratic opponents, but large swaths of voters remain undecided, according to a poll conducted for the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, who is seeking re-election, led Democrat Jody Wagner 44 percent to 31 percent, with 25 percent undecided, in the survey conducted Tuesday to Thursday by Mason Dixon Polling & Research Inc.
In the contest for attorney general, state Sen. Ken Cuccinelli, R-Fairfax, led Del. Steve Shannon, D-Fairfax, 37 percent to 30 percent, but 33 percent were undecided.
The large percentage of uncommitted voters reflects that the electorate, which is focused on the gubernatorial contest, has paid less attention to the down-ticket races.
It also suggests that the down ticket Republican candidates will benefit from McDonnell’s lead come Election Day.
