McDonnell's Popularity - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics
McDonnell’s Popularity

Yesterday the Washington Post came out with a poll of Virginians that showed very favorable sentiment for governor Bob McDonnell. He has a 62 percent job approval rating to only 26 percent disapproval. Eighty-two percent of Republicans approve of the way he’s handling the governorship, and Democrats also approve 50 percent to 36 percent. 

Given that he has such strong numbers and a record of accomplishment (the article mentions that he cut spending to 2006 levels and announced a surplus of $403 million), McDonnell is bound to become the subject of speculation about the vice presidential slot for the 2012 Republican ticket. McDonnell has been receptive to the idea of a vice presidential role. 

Both of the winners of the 2009 gubernatorial elections are positioned to receive significant consideration as the GOP runningmate in 2012, with New Jersey governor Chris Christie being the other one.
