New Virginia Senate Poll Stands Apart

February 28, 2012
Wilson said his poll was weighted by gender, race and age, but not by party identification. But he noted that the party-ID breakdown of the sample -- 30 percent Republican, 28 percent Democratic and 31 percent independent -- was close to the previous poll and not an overwhelmingly Republican sample The poll was also in the field for two weeks -- Feb. 13-26 -- a relatively long duration that Wilson chalks up to difficulty recruiting student interviewers during midterm exams and illnesses among non-student interviewers. Wilson said Roanoke College would be conducting another political poll of Virginians soon, and with control of both the Senate and the White House potentially hinging on the Old Dominion, there will be no shortage of public polling in the commonwealth that will either confirm Roanoke's findings that Allen has opened a small-but-significant lead, or show that, as previously thought, there is little if any separation between Allen and Kaine. The Roanoke poll surveyed 607 adults, for a margin of error of +/- 4.0 percentage points.
