Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "He is the only Republican office-holder in the seven states surveyed by Quinnipiac University who get positive ratings from women, almost 2-1 in this case, and a plus score from black voters.

Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins:
"Virginians made it clear in 2009 that they wanted common-sense conservative leadership, and Governor McDonnell has delivered. From day one, he focused on jobs and the economy, balancing the Commonwealth's budget without treating taxpayers like an ATM," he said. "As the Governor likes to say, 'Good policy is good politics,' and this poll continues to bear that out."
