Rasmussen Reports released a new poll on Monday that shows that “Democrat Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) has moved slightly ahead of Republican George Allen in Virginia’s neck-and-neck U.S. Senate race.”
The telephone survey of 500 likely Virginia voters shows support for Kaine at 47%, 2 points ahead of Allen, whose support is at 45%. The margin of error for the poll is 4.5%.
Last week, a poll by Gravis Marketing showed Allen with a 5 point lead.
Monday’s Rasmussen poll was another sign of concern for Virginia Republicans who see the Allen campaign as lacking in enthusiasm and grassroots support.
