Poll shows Virginians undecided in Democratic Governor primary

From NBC12 News

RICHMOND, VA (NBC12) - Terry McAuliffe continues to maintain a clear lead in the race for the Democratic Nomination for Governor, however many people have yet to make up their minds.

The latest survey released by Public Policy Polling shows the former DNC chair with a nine point lead over both Brian Moran and Creigh Deeds.

However 31 percent of Democrats have yet to make up their minds.

The poll is good news for State Senator Creigh Deeds who has gained six points in the last week.

Deeds has far less money to spend as compared to McAuliffe in the final two weeks, but he doesn't think that will matter.

"There is another candidate out there that has the ability to buy the election, and if Virginia is for sale and if this nomination is for sale he will make that purchase, there is no doubt about that," said Sen. Deeds. "We aren't going to have the resources the other candidate has but frankly we will have enough resources to make sure people have a choice."

Democratic voters will go the polls two weeks from Tuesday on June 9th.
