49% Allen (R)
44% Webb (D)
2% Parker (IG)
Since an identical SurveyUSA poll 2 weeks ago, Allen is up 1 point and Webb is down 1 point. (LINK)
This poll was conducted after the smear campaign against Sen Allen started and he gains a point! I bet the resignation watch has stopped. Likewise I bet the withdrawal watch is over. That looks kinda stupid when Sen Allen is leading by 5. There is nothing like a good set of numbers to sober up the left. I wish I could say the race will now focus on real issues that matter to Virginia. It wont happen. Other than Jim Webb wanting to cut and run in Iraq he does not have much to say. If nothing else this poll shows that Virginians are not buying into the smear attack. Alton has some inside info that some democrats are not happy with the Webb campaign. The A Team spanks the smear tactic hard.
In other news...Gas in Wise is $2.11. What about that stock market! Coal is booming! What are Jim Webb's thoughts about this? We will never know.
