This one remains a close one. Ten years ago, I wouldn’t have worried about the outcome, but Virginia has changed since then.

This is the ROMNEY EFFECT at work. Any election he's going to be in will reduce Republican turnout, or interest, in the other candidates.

Allen hasn't got a chance.

Wow... This one is FAR too close for comfort! The weak nominee at the top of the ticket may pull Allen down, while simultaneously pulling/dragging ol’ cybrow over the finish line. Doesn’t matter. They’ll just get as many votes as needed to put Kaine over the top, after the polls close from those select few precincts in NOVA.

As a senator, he’ll be a total liberal. Hell, just look at how Webb and Warner tow the party line, going far to the Left of the electorate on most issues. Ironic though, how Senator Webb is probably more Conservative than Romney is.... LOL! /cry

Come on man, this race has been very close since the jump, you make it sound like Allen has lost some big lead, this poll reflects no change. And even if Republican turnout in November will be down because of Romney that has no bearing on the results of opinion polls for a Senate race in April.

Given the 8 point GOP lead in enthusiasm these numbers translate to a 4 - 6 point win for Allen if the election was held next Tuesday. Remember it's not who you want to win - it's whether you actually go out to vote for him/her that means anything in the end. With Obama at the top of the ticket Kane has a heavy lift.

Sure it does. Republicans in Virginia have been totally disspirited and turned off by the Romney campaign corrupt practices.

The establishment is going to pay.
