New Polls Suggest Neither Candidate Popular with Virginians

August 30, 2013

Two new polls show Virginians aren't very enthusiastic about any of the candidates for governor.

In a Public Policy poll, Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe has a 42 percent unfavorable rating, while Republican Ken Cuccinelli scored a 53 percent unfavorable rating.

Both candidates received a 31 percent favorable rating in the poll.

Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis appears to be gaining ground, though.

If the election was held today, 44 percent of people surveyed said they'd vote for McAuliffe, 37 percent would vote for Cuccinelli, and 9 percent would vote for Sarvis.
