Allen Wins Debate
First off, the poll indicates 30% of Virginia watched the debate (301 of 1000 surveyed watched the debate). That seems high, but it was in prime time in every major market, so its believable I guess.
The numbers show that Allen won 48-38 with 14% saying there was no clear winner. The interesting numbers though are that 72% of GOPs thought Allen won, whereas only 58% of dems thought Webb won. Independents were split 48-37 Allen.
The favorable/unfavorables were about the same although Webb was seen a little bit more unfavorable than Allen (36% for Webb vs. 31% for Allen).
Keep in mind, this poll was only of 301 people and most of it has a MOE of +/-5.8%
One other point of note is that only 22% of "Northeast" watched the debate, so NOVA is probably underepresented in this poll.
