According to the latest Rasmussen Poll, Senator Mark Warner leads his opponent Ed Gillespie by 17%, with Warner having the support of 53% of likely voters while Gillespie captures 36%, with 3% of voters preferring another candidate and 9% undecided. This gap can be attributed to name recognition. Mark Warner has been in the Senate since 2008 so his name is well known. Only 2% of Virginia voters have never heard of Mark Warner while 23% have never heard of Ed Gillespie. Ninety percent of democrats support Warner while 70% of republicans support Gillespie. As Gillespie continues to campaign across the state these numbers will change. When Virginians hear Gillespie’s message of smaller government, lower taxes, abolishing Obamacare and support for the coal industry and off shore drilling, these numbers will change dramatically in Gillespie’s favor.
