Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) looks poised to finish his first and only term in good standing among his constituents in the Commonwealth, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University released Thursday.
The poll shows that 53 percent of Virginia voters approve of the job McDonnell is doing as governor, while 26 percent disapprove. McDonnell has earned consistently high marks for his job performance since taking office in 2010. His tenure in Richmond will draw to a close at the end of 2013 due to a state law that prohibits governors from serving two consecutive terms.
