In the latest Virginia Senate poll from RoanokeÂ College,Â Senator Tim Kaine has a 17% lead over Corey Stewart,(51%-34%).Â From the Roanoke poll,Â
A plurality of voters (25%) see economic issues as most important in the Senate election, followed by health care (11%), education (6%), immigration (6%), honesty/character (6%), and stopping Donald Trump (5%).
Half of likely voters (50%) have a favorable view of Kaine (33% unfavorable), while a plurality (43%) still does not know enough about Stewart to have an opinion. Those who do are split evenly, with 23 percent having a favorable view of Stewart and 23 percent having an unfavorable view.
A plurality of likely voters (46%) think that Kaine’s positions are about right for Virginia, while just over one-third (35%) think they are too liberal. Voters are slightly more likely to think Stewart’s views are too extreme for Virginia (27%) than to think they are about right (24%), but a plurality (42%) are unsure.
A majority of voters disapprove of the job Trump is doing, 53% compared to 32% who approve.
When voters were asked if they prefer that the Democrats control Congress or Republicans, Democrats were on top 46% to 35%.Â Not even close.
My conclusions, Kaine will blanket the airwaves throughout the fall because he has raised almost $19 million to Stewarts $1.3.Â Â Kaine will win with over 60% of the vote.Â Republicans will lose several seats in the House due to Virginia’s voters dislike of Trump.Â With the help of Virginia, Democrats will take over the House and immediately begin impeachment charges against the President. It’s going to get ugly out there!
