Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli are in a 38 - 38 percent dead heat in their race to become Virginia's next governor. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, running as an independent candidate, leaves the race a statistical tie, with McAuliffe at 34 percent, Cuccinelli at 31 percent and Bolling at 13 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Bolling, elected as a Republican, said he will make a major announcement next month, presumably about the governor's race.

Today's 38 - 38 percent horse race is almost identical to the findings from a January 9 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, showing 40 percent for McAuliffe and 39 percent for Cuccinelli. In a three-way race measured January 9, McAuliffe and Cuccinelli had 34 percent each, with 13 percent for Bolling.

"Although the folks in Richmond are paying close attention to the political maneuvering around the governor's race, most Virginians have not yet begun focusing on it," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"When asked about the candidates, most voters don't know enough about Terry McAuliffe or Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling to have an opinion and barely half know enough about Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to form an opinion. This despite the fact that Bolling and Cuccinelli have been elected to statewide office and McAuliffe ran for governor four years ago."

Cuccinelli has a 30 - 25 percent favorability rating. McAuliffe gets a 23 - 16 percent score, with 60 percent who don't know enough about him to form an opinion. Bolling has an 18 - 10 percent favorability, with 72 percent who don't know enough about him.

Virginia voters give Bolling a 36 - 18 percent job approval, while Cuccinelli gets a 41 - 32 percent approval rating.

"Bolling probably has the greatest growth potential of the candidates but he also has the farthest to go to become a major contender. At this point - although it certainly could change - the data indicates that Bolling's GOP critics who say he can't win as an independent but might tilt the result to McAuliffe could be on to something," said Brown.

In a two-way race, McAuliffe wins Democrats 83 - 4 percent. Cuccinelli takes Republicans 87 - 2 percent. Independent voters go 33 percent for Cuccinelli and 29 percent for McAuliffe. Women go to the Democrat 42 - 33 percent, while men go Republican 44 - 34 percent. Cuccinelli wins white voters 47 - 31 percent, while black voters go to McAuliffe 64 - 11 percent.

In a three-way race, Bolling gets 10 percent of Republicans, but just 5 percent of Democrats.

Interestingly, voters are split evenly, 44 - 43 percent, on whether Cuccinelli should resign as attorney general while he runs for governor. These same voters say 48 - 36 percent that Bolling should remain lieutenant governor if he runs for governor. The difference between the public view of the two men stems from Democrats saying Bolling should remain in office even if he runs by 42 - 39 percent, but think Cuccinelli should resign by 55 - 30 percent.

As he enters the fourth year of his term, Gov. Bob McDonnell remains popular with voters. He has a 53 - 28 percent job approval with voters, including 77 - 11 percent among Republicans and 55 - 22 percent among independent voters. Even his 47 - 32 percent disapproval among Democrats is better than many governors in the view of the opposition party.

Virginia lawmakers, however, do not fare as well with voters. The State Legislature gets a 46 - 38 disapproval compared to a 43 - 39 percent approval in early January before the legislative session was in full swing.

From February 14 - 18, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,112 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.
