Bearing Drift takes a shot at polling the 2013 elections - with a twist.
The split here diverges from other polls, which have assumed the 2013 electorate will look far more like it did in the 2012 presidential year than has historically been the case for Virginia’s off-year elections. Recall that in 2009, that electorate was +4 Republican over Democrat.

Cuccinelli may find slow and steady beats flashy.
