Blue Virginia touts a poll showing Tim Kaine with a five-point lead over George Allen.
Let's go to the crosstabs.
Democrats 36%, Republicans 33%
What are the party breakdown of the final poll before the 2009 election?
Democrats 35%, Republicans 35%
And that poll underperformed the actual vote total.
Gee, Tim Kaine leads in a poll with more Democrats than Republicans. Who could have seen that coming?
Give me a better poll and I'll believe Democrats have a small chance in 2012.
