Is U.S. Sen. Mark Warner vulnerable in his upcoming 2014 re-election race? A poll commissioned by a conservative website suggests he may be. The Washington Free Beacon poll found that Warner would defeat a generic Republican candidate by just five points, 50 percent to 45 percent.
OK, so he didn’t get 10 percent, and he surely didn’t win. But Robert Sarvis held on to most of the support that he was getting in polls taken before the 2013 Virginia governor election.

It’s hard, really hard, to imagine Democrat Terry McAuliffe not winning the 2013 Virginia governor’s race, and by a relatively safe margin.

Terry McAuliffe is seen as the lesser of two evils, mediocre choices, whatever, and thus seems poised to win the 2013 Virginia governor race.
