McDonnell 51, Deeds 43

Anita Kumar

As we've explained before we don't trust all the polls that come out during the governor's race, but here's one that we can tell you about.

A DailyKos/Research 2000 poll on the governor's race shows that Republican Bob McDonnell leads Democrat Creigh Deeds among likely voters, 51 percent to 43 percent.

Back in mid-June, McDonnell had 45 percent and Deeds 44 percent. Check out the favorable numbers: McDonnell at 57 percent, Deeds at 46 percent.

The left-leaning Daily Kos tells us that undecided voters gradually have gotten behind McDonnell with gains coming primarily from independents and a handful of Democrats.

"we don't trust all the polls."

This is an astonishing statement. You don't trust polls but you report this one? Two other companies released polls with larger leads for McDonnell but you chose a Daily Kos poll.

Should we trust you and your selective reporting?

WTF? Are you serious? You're reporting on a DK poll, but neglect to talk about any of the other polls with credibility?

Seriously! Get a brain and report on something worth reading.
