Governor Mark Warner sees his term ends this year, and there are some expectations that he will run against Allen in '06, and this poll in RollCall has Warner ahead solidly:An Emerson College poll released late last week showed Gov. Mark Warner (D) beating Sen. George Allen (R) in a hypothetical 2006 Senate matchup.
Warner garnered 48 percent to Allen's 41 percent in the poll, which was taken Feb. 13-17. The survey of 420 likely voters had a 5 percent margin of error.
"Warner's appeal is unprecedented and could result in a Democratic victory on Capitol Hill in 2006," said David Paleologos, president of DAPA Research Inc., who oversaw the poll.
Warner is the Democrats' dream candidate, and their only real prospect, to take on Allen, a former governor who was first elected to the Senate in 2000.
But there are expectations that Warner also wants to run in '08 for President... can Warner do both too?
