But when you break it down regionally - by area codes - one result is very intriguing:
Deeds is playing well in his home turf (parts of 434 and 540) and Moran is playing well in his (703). Now, I live in Henry County which is part of the eastern perimeter of the 276 area code, an area code which covers all of South West Virginia. So, my eyes naturally gravitated to that region. Several things strike me about these results. Off the top, Brian Moran has zero support according to this survey, out of 40 respondents (4% of the 998 total respondents). Also, McAuliffe is smoking here, relatively speaking, which is surprising since Rep. Boucher has endorsed Deeds. Since I am unaware of McAuliffe's campaign strategy in the region - i.e., no television ads are airing - I wonder if his strength in this region is somehow related to Hillary Clinton's dominance of the region during the VA Primaries (see primary results map here). Given McAuliffe's close relationship to the Clintons, is the region positively associating the former with the latter? Who knows. It's just a thought.
