The new Public Policy Polling surveyof Virginia has two pieces of bad news for Democrats. The obvious one: In the gubernatorial race, State Sen. Creigh Deeds (D) is lagging 14 points behind Republican candidate Bob McDonnell, the state’s former attorney general. The worse news:
The 5% of John McCain’s voters planning to vote for Deeds is actually equal to the 5% of Barack Obama’s voters planning to vote for McDonnell. But Republicans, on a losing streak in Virginia, appear to be more motivated about heading to the polls at this point three months before the election.
The danger sign for Democrats is that when asked who they supported in 2008, 52 percent of voters said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and 41 percent said President Obama. The actual result in 2008? A 53-46 Obama victory. That suggests a dip in Democratic enthusiasm that will hurt the party down the ballot.
