Virginia Senate Poll: Allen 56%, Webb 37%.

Frankly, you can find polls to say almost anything. But since some people like to follow polls, I thought this one was interesting.

From the WDBJ, Channel 7, Roanoke - News-7 Poll: Allen leads Webb in first Senate poll:

George Allen would defeat Jim Webb if the election of U.S. Senate in Virginia were held today.

That's the finding of a statewide News-7 poll conducted this week. This is the first SurveyUSA poll since Jim Webb won the Democratic nomination to face Republican incumbent George Allen.

SurveyUSA interviewed 1,200 Virginia adults Sunday through Wednesday of this week. Of them, 984 were registered to vote. Of them, 533 were judged to be "likely" voters.

The breakdowns in "Survey Details" reflect likely voters.

Fifty-six percent of the likely voters said they'd vote for Allen. Thirty-seven percent said they'd vote for Webb.
56% Allen (R)
37% Webb (D)
2% Parker (IG)
3% Other
3% Undecided

If the Rassussen poll was Webb's bounce from the primary, it has suffered the same fate as the ball in the Tempur-Pedic commercial.
