As a Virginian, don't be surprised with those African-American numbers. George Allen still took 22% of the African-American vote in his unsuccessful 2006 re-election bid against Jim Webb, and that was after the 'macaca' incident.

Remember, a prominent African-American Democrat, State Senator Benjamin Lambert, endorsed George Allen over Jim Webb in that election

Yes, but he won't exceed that by much if at all in 2012 with Barack Obama on the ticket campaigning for Tim Kaine. So expect Kaine to get almost all of the 11% undecided black voters to move up to about 78-80%. Still lower than Obama will pull, but you won't see Kaine in the 60s, just like you didn't see Webb there.

As a Virginian it creeps me out that this race is even close. George Allen? ugh...

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
