Most Virginia Voters Don't Want McDonnell to Resign

A new Quinnipiac poll in Virginia finds the scandal surrounding gifts given to Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and his family by a political donor haven't derailed his governorship.

Voters still say by a 44% to 36% margin that McDonnell is honest and trustworthy and only 16% of voters, most of whom are Democrats, think he should resign.

Said pollster Peter Brown: "Almost 80 percent of voters are aware of the controversy and seem to be somewhat concerned. The bottom line seems to be that they view him as just another politician, but at this point they are not clamoring for his scalp."
