New Poll Shows Democrats Well Placed to Take Control of Virginia Legislature This Year
Democratic enthusiasm, low approval numbers for Trump continue to imperil Republicans
 
Richmond, VA – A new poll of likely 2019 General Election voters in Virginia’s battleground State Senate and House of Delegates districts shows that despite the turmoil caused by Democratic state leaders, the fundamentals of these competitive districts are quite strong for the Democratic Party. Democrats are not demoralized by the news out of Richmond. Instead, excitement among the Democratic Party’s rank-and-file exceeds the Republicans, and Republicans must still contend with negativity toward Donald Trump that led to big legislative gains for Democrats in 2017. The Democratic Party has clear advantages on the issues that do matter to these battleground district voters – education, health care, choice – and it’s legislative candidates are positioned strongly for success in November. Key survey findings can be found below:
 
The poll, conducted by Global Strategy Group and commissioned by the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, surveyed 600 likely General Election voters in 34 battleground State Senate and House of Delegates districts from February 19-21, 2019. The margin of error for the poll is +/- 4.0%.
 
 
The numbers speak for themselves. With strong momentum and high spirits moving into the 2019 General Election, Democrats are likely to continue making gains towards taking back the legislature.
