Poll : McDonnell Slightly Ahead Of Deeds

Play associated audio

With 48 days to go, a new poll in Virginia finds Republican Bob McDonnell only slightly ahead of Democratic state Sen. Creigh Deeds in the race for governor.

A telephone survey of 600 registered voters conducted from Friday through Monday showed 42 percent supported McDonnell and 37 percent back Deeds. But the poll,the first in Virginia by the firm Clarus Research Group, also showed that one fifth of those surveyed were undecided.

Clarus is a new, nonpartisan survey and market research firm based in the district and headed by Ronald A. Faucheux, the former editor of Campaigns & Elections magazine. Clarus says the survey was done for the firm's own use and not sponsored or paid for by an outside client.
