New Poll Results in Race for VA Governor

 

 
 
Four new surveys released in the last week (Survey USA, Washington Post, Rasmussen and Mason-Dixon) re-affirm the results of surveys released the week before showing Republican Bob McDonnell leading Democrat Creigh Deeds from between five and fourteen percentage points.
 
Last week, The Washington Post and Survey USA released surveys show McDonnell leading between nine and eleven percentage points, with few changes from surveys conducted over the summer by the same organizations.
 
Rasmussen and Mason-Dixon released polls Tuesday (Oct 13) and Saturday (Oct 10) showing McDonnell leading by seven and eight points respectively.
 
The Washington Post showed McDonnell leading by nine, 53% - 44%. The previous Washington Post survey from mid-September showed McDonnell up by four.
 
Survey USA showed McDonnell leading by eleven, 54% - 43%. The previous Survey USA survey from the previous week showed McDonnell up by fourteen.
 
The Mason-Dixon survey conducted last week and released over the weekend shows McDonnell leading by eight, 48% - 40%
