New Poll Shows McDonnell Leading Head-to-head Matchups

Filed under: Bob McDonnell,Brian Moran,Creigh Deeds,Terry McAuliffe — loudounlady @ 1:42 pm

In less than three weeks the Democratic Party of Virginia will have selected their nominee and opponent for Bob McDonnell.  The only problem, McDonnell leads all three possible opponents in head-to-head matchups.  McDonnell leads Creigh Deeds and Terry McAuliffe by 6 points while taking a 10 point lead over Brian Moran. 

A bit of startling news for the McDonnell Camp is the momentum Creigh Deeds is gathering.  I believe Deeds would be the best opportunity for the Democrats to hold onto the governor’s mansion.  Deeds can connect with moderates and independents, something that is going to be crucial in this race.

Here are some quick facts from SurveyUSA’s poll:

Democratic Primary Voters Margin of Error :± 4.5%
   26% Deeds
  37% McAuliffe
  22% Moran
  14% Other / Undecided
Head-to-head Matchups Margin of Error: ± 2.4%
McDonnell/Deeds:  
  46% McDonnell (R)
  40% Deeds (D)
  15% Undecided
McDonnell/McAuliffe:  
  46% McDonnell (R)
  40% McAuliffe (D)
  13% Undecided
McDonnell/Moran  
  47% McDonnell (R)
  37% Moran (D)
  16% Undecided
