Cuccinelli Faces Uphill Climb According to New Poll

The full results are here.  It appears that McAuliffe's constant onslaught of negative ads defining Cuccinelli and the AG's inability to fully respond has taken it's toll.
"Terry McAuliffe's strategy has been to paint Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as too conservative to be Virginia's next governor. Today, almost half of Virginia voters agree, more than the 38 percent who say McAuliffe is too liberal," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Cuccinelli can take solace in the fact that in 2001 polls showed Democrat Mark Warner winning by as much as 17% and he ended up winning by just 5%.  But it is clear the AG has his work cut out for him and it is also clear that his campaign strategists, even though they have been told they need to make a mid-course correction, have ignored the message.
