Oh, damn.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II has an early lead over businessman Terry McAuliffe in their race for governor, a new Washington Post poll shows, even as most voters in the commonwealth have yet to engage in the nationally watched contest.

Six months before Election Day, Cuccinelli (R) has a slender 46 to 41 percent edge over McAuliffe (D) among all Virginia voters and a significant 51 to 41 percent lead among those who say they’re certain to cast ballots in November.


When I went to the high school on Friday and registered students to vote, I asked each class if anyone knew what offices the November election was for, only two kids -- in all seven classes -- knew the election is for governor.

I asked the waiter at the restaurant we had lunch at if he was registered to vote and he said yes, he was. But he didn't know what the election in November is for.

We have our work cut out for us.
