New Polls: Deeds, Moran, McDonnell

A couple different polls are out this afternoon, with surrogates for Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell and Democratic candidates Creigh Deeds and Brian Moran touting the results.

The breakdown is after the jump.

Poll #1

Moran’s team is pushing poll results from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, which surveyed 400 likely primary voters about who they’ll likely support next Tuesday. The margin of error was +/-4.9%.

Moran: 29%, Deeds: 27%, McAuliffe: 26%, Undecided: 18%

Poll #2

The Deeds campaign calls attention to a Public Policy Polling survey of 559 likely primary voters. Margin of error is +/-4.1%.

Deeds: 27%, McAuliffe: 24%, Moran: 22%, Undecided 26%

This poll also shows Deeds with a 12 percentage-point jump in Northern Virginia, an area the rural state senator is targeting.

Poll # 3

Survey USA/WJLA-TV, Washington polled 1743 registered Northern Virginia voters about possible general election matchups. The results show Bob McDonnell in close contests with all three of his possible opponents, even in a seriously blue portion of the Commonwealth.  Margin of error here is +/-2.4%.

McDonnell 44%, McAuliffe 44%

McDonnell 43%, Deeds 43%

McDonnell 42%, Moran 47%

I don’t put a ton of stock in polling numbers (see: Goode, Virgil), but if you’re a bean counter — or a vote counter in this case — the results are some fun food for thought.

If nothing else, we know that the undecided voters will once again be critical in picking the winners in these races. It’s still anybody’s election to win or lose.
