Deeds, Moran pull even with McAuliffe in new poll
With one week to go until the June 9 Democratic primary for governor, both State Senator Creigh Deeds and former delegate Brian Moran have pulled even with one-time frontrunner and former Democratic National Committee chair Terry McAuliffe. According to the latest survey of likely primary voters from Public Policy Polling, Deeds has actually leapfrogged McAuliffe, earning 27 percent of voters' support to McAuliffe's 24 percent, and Moran's 22 percent. That's a significant shift from just one week ago, when McAuliffe led both Deeds and Moran by nine points. Add to that that the fact that 26 percent of those polled were still undecided and that the survey had a 4.1 percent margin of error, and the race truly becomes neck-and-neck-and-neck.
