Kaine Pulls Ahead in Virginia

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Virginia shows Tim Kaine (D) has finally opened up a small lead over George Allen (R) in what has been a deadlocked U.S. Senate contest. He now leads by five points, 47% to 42%.

Key finding: 34% of Virginia voters do not consider themselves to be Southerners and with them Kaine has a 61% to 29% advantage. Among those who do still identify as Southerners, they favor Allen 47% to 41%, "but Allen is getting so thoroughly defeated with the newbies that he trails overall anyway."
