PPP Poll: McDonnell Has Small Lead Over Deeds

Now that we're in the doldrums of summer (politics-wise; we love this part of summer otherwise), we have our first post-primary bounce poll in the Va. governors race, from PPP, which gives Bob McDonnell a small lead over Creigh Deeds, 49%-43%.

We'd expect PPP, and perhaps a couple other pollsters, to start doing polling at regular intervals from here on out, giving us a good trendline as the race heats up after Labor Day.

Both Deeds and McDonnell enjoy solid favorability ratings, so we guess it won't be too long before they both begin tearing each other down!

We don't expect much movement in the polls until the campaign gets underway in earnest come September.
