From the University's poll summary

"As Gov. Bob McDonnell enters his final year in office, he remains one of the nation's more popular chief state executives," said Peter A. 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. A 2-1 approval rating among young voters doesn't hurt."  

 

Among the key findings:

* Women approve of McDonnell 48-26,
* Independents approve of McDonnell 58-23,
* African American voters approve of McDonnell 41-32,
* Young voters approve of McDonnell 48-24


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."
