Quinnipiac Poll: Warner would rule gov race in Va

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A new poll of Virginia voters suggests that if Democratic Sen. Mark Warner seeks an encore term as governor, he'd dominate the field. But if he stays put, it's anybody's game.

Quinnipiac University's survey of 1,469 registered Virginia voters from Nov. 8-12 showed that 53 percent would support Warner in a matchup with Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling to Bolling's 33 percent.

Matched against Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, 52 percent support Warner and 34 percent back Cuccinelli.

Warner says he'll decide by Thanksgiving whether to seek another term as governor.

The only announced Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, would be about even with Bolling while 41 percent would back him against Cuccinelli, who would receive 37 percent.

The poll's margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
