McDonnell 2009 Frontrunner

Yesterday, Not Larry Sabato announced the results of an online poll asking “If the election for Governor of Virginia were tomorrow, who would you vote for?” The blogosphere had a couple days to vote and the results showed Bob McDonnell as the favorite frontrunner in the 2009 battle for the Governor’s Mansion.

Attorney General McDonnell won overwhelmingly on a democrat blog!! This is impressive. Over 900 people voted in what really was the first poll for 2009.

I know that it isn’t a scientific poll, but this does show a couple things. First, McDonnell has an impressive reservoir of support among Virginia’s leading political activists. For those of us who frequent the blogosphere we see Bob McDonnell visiting often, doing live blogs, interviews, and podcasts. He continues his outreach to the blogs and the media, he has strong connections in NOVA and Tidewater Virginia, and he is doing great things for Virginia. Most importantly, the poll shows that political insiders recognize McDonnell is the frontrunner for 2009.
