Blame George Allen. Blame Jim Webb's campaign. Blame the Washington Post. But any way you look at it, "macaca" has legs in the polling. A new SurveyUSA poll finds Allen edging Webb by 48 to 45 percent if the election were held today. Allen's support is particularly low even among those who support the state's marriage amendment.
The bright side for you Allen supporters: the election is still months away. Hopefully Senator Allen can avoid stepping into any more caca between now and then.
