Transportation bill has not dented McDonnell's popularity

Remember all the bruhaha after Governor Bob McDonnell's transportation bill was passed with bipartisan votes at the end of the 2013 General Assembly?

Yeah ... me, too.

Making common sense decisions defines McDonnell as a pragmatic conservative leader. The latest Quinnipiac poll shows the majority of Virginians agree with that leadership. That poll shows McDonnell remains one of the most popular governors in America with a more than 2-to-1 job approval rating. Quinnipiac reported that 64 percent of Virginians say the state is heading in the right direction.

A whopping 73 percent of Republicans support the Governor.

He continues to be popular in all parts of the state, and registers a 56/22 job approval among independents (+34).

He has 46/27 job approval among women (+19).

He has 41/25 job approval among young voters (+16).

He has 43/31 job approval among African Americans (+12).

Bob McDonnell was elected by Virginians to make the tough decisions and get the job done. That is exactly what he has done, and the latest poll shows that Virginians appreciate his leadership.
