A new SurveyUSA poll in Virginia finds yet more evidence that former DNC chairman Terry McAuliffe is leading the pack for the June 9 Democratic primary for Governor.
The numbers: McAuliffe 37%, state Sen. Creigh Deeds 26%, and former state Del. Brian Moran 22%, with a Â±4.5% margin of error. Three weeks ago, it was McAuliffe 38%, and Deeds and Moran tied at 22% each.
The pollster's analysis finds that 57% of likely primary voters could change their minds, so the race is still very much in a fluid condition, though McAuliffe sure seems to be the man to beat.
However, all three Dems currently trail the Republican candidate, former state Atty. Bob McDonnell, who leads McAuliffe 46%-40%, is ahead of Deeds 46%-40%, and beats Moran 47%-37%. Still, this formerly Republican state has officially become a swing state in the wake of Barack Obama's win last year, so there's no telling what will happen when the general election campaign really gets going after the primary.
