PPP Poll Preview: Many still undecided, but a front-runner emerging

PPP Virgina Governor's poll will be out tomorrow. Meanwhile, up on their blog, they offer the following tease:
36% of respondents said they were undecided. And among the 64% who have a candidate right now 41% say they could still change their minds between now and the primary.

That leaves 62% of the electorate undecided or malleable.

But there's definitely a front runner emerging- and he also has the most solid support.

Based on a blog post they put out a few days ago in response to the SUSA poll, I'd have to guess that is Terry McAuliffe emerging as the frontrunner. This is what they said on May 1:
The thing that surprised me most in the SUSA numbers was only 18% of the electorate being undecided. We've already started our poll and continue to find it more around 40%.


We do join them in seeing movement toward Terry McAuliffe so far although I don't know if we're seeing quite the magnitude of that they did.

    First of all, great blogging. Second, I was hoping that you could add my blog to your blog roll. I am an intern for the Deeds campaign in Charlottesville, and I maintain The blog on the website is updated every few days with information on campaign happenings. The RSS feed for the blog is and the blog is at that address, but just substitute "php" instead of "rss".
