Not much movement in Virginia
Terry McAuliffe 21
Brian Moran 19
Creigh Deeds 14

The big winner in the Virginia Democratic primary for Governor continues to be 'undecided.' 46% of voters have not made their minds up, down slightly from 53% in PPP's first monthly tracking poll of the race.

Last month McAuliffe and Moran were tied at 18% with Deeds further back at 11%. The basic contour of the race has not changed much over the last four weeks with McAuliffe and Deeds each picking up an additional three points and Moran gaining by one.

Helping McAuliffe to his small lead is holding the advantage among black voters, 26-16 over Moran. He has led with that demographic in both of our polls. He is particularly weak though with independent voters, carrying 11%, well behind both Deeds and Moran. He was similarly week in that demographic a month ago, carrying only 9%.

Moran and Deeds have the best net favorability ratings of the trio, each at +16. Moran is the more well known at 30/14 and Deeds' numbers are 26/10. McAuliffe has both the highest positives and negatives of the field, at 31/24. He's the only candidate that more than half of the likely primary electorate has developed an opinion of.

There's not going to be a lot of movement in this contest until the candidates start really ratcheting up their ad buys.

1. I saw a McAuliffe commercial a week or so ago
If he wins the nomination, I think his running would be a disaster if the GOP ran someone halfway decent....

3. Agreed, McAuliffe would be a disaster of the first order for us VA Dems.

It makes me want to :puke: to think that after FINALLY turning our state blue for the first time in my life, Virginia Democrats would become a national laughingstock by choosing that asshat to be our candidate.

5. McAuliffe should be an operative, not a politician.
I say that as someone who is generally a fan of Terry McAuliffe.
