New George Allen Poll
The poll shows him with an overall approval rating of 51%. The more interesting thing about it is that it has breakdowns by region, race, and issue stances.
Regionally, George Allen has an approval rating of 51% in the Shenandoah Valley, 52% in Tidewater, 57% in Richmond and central VA and 46% in NOVA.
That bodes well since I pointed out the toughest congressional race will be the 2nd in Virginia Beach. Allen campaigning for Drake should boost her numbers since his approval is above 50% in the region (my guess is that would be higher in her specific district, but thats only speculation).
One other interesting note is that he has a 68% approval rating of pro-lifers, and a 41% approval (and 41% disapproval rating) from pro-choicers. That is an important statistic. If George Allen can garner a 1-1 ratio of pro-choice voters, then get the pro-lifers 2-1; he is in a very good political position.
Lets just see if these numbers hold through the expected dirty campaign that should start around June 13th or so.
