A new Roanoke College Poll validated what we already knew: Virginians do not approve of Donald Trump and his agenda. The poll noted that a whopping 48 percent of Virginians have an unfavorable view of him while only 30 percent have a favorable view.
By contrast, 52 percent of Virginians approve of Governor McAuliffe and his efforts to bolster the economy and improve the lives of Virginians across the Commonwealth. Virginians also approve of Virginia's other statewide elected Democrats Senator Mark Warner (5o percent) and Senator Tim Kaine (48 percent).
"Trump's disapproval rating in Virginia is through the roof, which spells disaster for Republican gubernatorial candidates Ed Gillespie, Frank Wagner and Corey Stewart who campaigned for him and are trying to implement Trump's dangerous agenda in the Commonwealth." - Emily Bolton, Communications Director, Democratic Party of Virginia
