CQ Politics: Democrat Edges Into Post-Primary Lead for Virginia Governor

Poll Tracker:

Creigh Deeds — fresh off his runaway victory in Tuesday’s Democratic primary for governor of Virginia — has moved out to a slight lead over Republican Bob McDonnell, his opponent in the Nov. 3 general election.

Rasmussen Reports poll taken Wednesday had Deeds at 47 percent and McDonnell, a former state Attorney General, at 41 percent. The survey was conducted as Deeds, a state senator, was basking in the media spotlight after easily defeating primary foes Terry McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, and former state Rep. Brian Moran.
