Webb Within Striking Distance of Allen
Allen's latest demonstration of his bigoted racist attitude appears to be giving a boost to the Webb campaign. A recent Survey USA poll has Allen taking a modest beating for the remark with 67% saying it was innapropriate, and a near 50/50 split saying the comment was racist. Furthermore, a majority thought Allen's pitiful apology was inadequate. Allen's approval rating in this poll has dropped from 51% to 47%. A new Rasmussen poll yet to be released allegedly has Webb only 5% behind Allen now. Since the poll hasn't even been released yet, I obviously don't have the internals, but the timing of the poll makes me think that Webb is probably picking up ground as an aftershock of Allen's "macaca" comment.
