Since it looks like Chris Christie has the New Jersey situation pretty much locked up, at least for now, the race for governorship of purpley Virginia is probably going to be the most exciting polling and election news we have on the docket for 2013. At this very preliminary moment, survey says we’re in for a tight race:
Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli are running neck and neck early in the 2013 race for governor of Virginia, according to a poll today by Quinnipiac University.
McAuliffe, the McLean-based, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee turned green energy entrepreneur, draws 40 percent of voters surveyed to 39 percent for Cuccinelli, the firebrand conservative former state senator who was elected attorney general in 2009. Nearly one in five vogters are undecided. …
The survey was conducted Jan. 4-7 of 1,134 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points. The survey consisted of live interviewers calling voters on land lines and cell phones.
