On September 6, Rasmussen Reports released a gubernatorial opinion poll for the Virginia race. Respondents were asked, “If the election for Governor of Virginia were held today, would you vote for Republican Ken Cuccinelli or Democrat Terry McAuliffe?”. The results: 45% McAuliffe, 38% Cuccinelli, 7% “someone else”; 10% not sure. See here for more details. It isn’t clear whether respondents were told they could choose “someone else”, or whether they had to volunteer the very idea that they wanted to vote for someone else.
As most readers know, there are only three candidates on the November 2013 ballot. The candidate whose name was not mentioned by Rasmussen is Rob Sarvis, the Libertarian nominee. Thanks to PoliticalWire for the link.
