McAuliffe Continues To Lead In Two New Polls

Two new polls are out, both showing Terry McAuliffe leading rivals Brian Moran and Creigh Deeds in the Va. Democratic gubernatorial primary.

1. Daily Kos:
McAuliffe 36%
Moran 22%
Deeds 13%
Undecided 29%

2. Survey USA
McAuliffe 37%
Deeds 26%
Moran 22%
Undecided 14%

Both polls indicate that a large percentage of voters indicate they could change their minds, so while McAuliffe has made big in-roads, he's hardly locked it up.

Both polls also asked about match-ups between each of the three Democrats and Republican nominee Bob McDonnell. Suffice it to say that McDonnell leads all three in both polls, by roughly 6-12 percentage points.

We don't put much stock--yet--in the numbers for the match-ups with McDonnell. It's too early with three Democrats duking it out for the nomination. At the same time, whichever candidate gets the Dem nomination will have his work cut out for him.
