We Ask America poll has GOP contender Mitt Romney ahead of President Barack Obama 48% to 43%. Is this the beginning of Obama losing traction in the Commonwealth of VA? The poll also shows that Republican George Allen is also leading Democrat candidate Tim Kaine. The Weekly Standard asks whether this is a trend or an outlier?
Virginia also has a barn-burner race for the U.S. Senate (that may be greatly influence by the presidential election) pitting Republican former Senator George Allen against Democrat National Committee Chair and former Governor Tim Kaine.
In 2008 Obama won Virginia by 6%. Now he finds himself behind in this poll and nearly a dead heat in the RCP average of polling. One can clearing see by the polling data that there appears to be a shift to Romney. Looks to see what happens following the SCOTUS decision of Obamacare to be the next game changer in the polling.
