Mason-Dixon Shows Kaine by 1

From Garren Shipley in the NV Daily:

A Mason-Dixon poll conducted for The Northern Virginia Daily and other newspapers this week found Democrat Tim Kaine with a 1-point lead over Republican Jerry Kilgore — still a statistical dead heat and well within the poll’s 4 percent margin of error.

Some 45 percent of voters support Kaine while 44 percent say they back Kilgore, according to the poll. Independent candidate state Sen. H. Russell Potts Jr., R-Winchester, finishes a distant third with 4 percent.

Potts’ support has eroded to a point where even his potential to be a spoiler is all but gone, said J. Bradford Coker, managing director of Mason-Dixon Polling and Research.

We seem on our way to an 1989-style election night. The margin of victory could be razor-thin.

And crazy ol' looks like he's crapped out on the spoiler role, too.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
