Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

New George Allen Poll

Thanks to Not Gretchen Bulova at NLS for pointing out the new SurveyUSA approval rating poll on George Allen.
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.

    Where do you get "expected dirty campaign"? The only one with a history of that involved in this race is Allen (Mary Sue Terry is a lesbian!!!) and Wadhams.

    Well VC, if you dont think Miller/Webb arent going to attack Allen with every weapon in the arsenal, I dont know what else to say.
    Obviously Allen will do the same.

    Miller and Webb are going at each other as it is. Miller's whispers calling Webb everything just short of Rascist just to name a few things.

    The Dems will tear both Miller and Webb apart leaving no work needed for Sen Allen.

    Once again Dems showing why they win so many elections [sarcasm]

    The only way that George Allen will win the U.S. Senate election in Virginia is if that asshole is going to CHEAT his ass off somehow.

    His opponent Naval Officer Jim Webb needs to, in advance, ensure that the voting is conducted in a totally fair and impartial manner, because, without question, the only way the racist, sexist, loser George Allen is going to win is if he manages to cheat somehow.
