Republican George Allen has opened an eight-point lead (45%-37%) on Democrat Tim Kaine in a likely November matchup for the U.S. Senate seat from Virginia according to The Roanoke College Poll.Expected to be the battle of the titans, Virginia's senate race is between two former governors who must make it through their Party primaries. However, they are expected to be the candidates.
Bearing Drift colleague Shaun Kenney posted the poll results and noted:
Allen on the economy. Kaine all over the map (and losing). There’s your takeaway.George Allen has been crisscrossing the Commonwealth talking jobs, economy, and energy with his Blueprint for America's Comeback.
Perhaps Tim Kaine needs to rethink his undying support of President Barack Obama's overreaching government policies and do less finger-pointing.
