((HERE COMES MARK WARNER, THE HERO OF THE HILLS.)) [RUNS:04]
After a month of heavy T-V face time, and in the week after voters around the state picked him two urban running mates, Democratic candidate Mark Warner is still up.
In our latest NEWS 7/Mason-Dixon poll, Warner leads Republican Mark Earley by five percentage points, 45-40, in a poll with a margin of error of plus or minus four points.
But Mark Earley has gained ground since our last poll in March, when Warner had a seven point lead, and it was a 44-37 contest.
Since March, of course, Earley's won his party's nomination in a June 2nd convention, stepped down from the Attorney General's office, and hit the fundraising trail to try to erase a huge cash disadvantage.
The Warner ads have clearly paid off in name recognition.
95 percent in our poll recognize the Democratic entrepreneur.
87 percent recognize Republican Earley, even though he's held statewide office for three years.
But its the regional results that best show what Mark Warner's strategy is and has to be to win.
He is strong in his home base of northern Virginia, with a 50-35 showing over Earley.
He is almost equally strong in Roanoke and Southwest, with a 49- 36 advantage.
And even on Earley's home turf of Hampton Roads, Mark Warner has a 46 to 40 percent edge.
Not surprisingly, Mark Earley wins in Lynchburg and Southside, where he polls 43 percent support to Warner's 38 percent.
Earley also takes the Shenandoah Valley and Piedmont regions with 47 percent to Warner's 40 percent.
But for comparison, Republican George Allen won those regions by about 20 and 25 percentage points in last fall's poll.
They have lately been bigtime Republican country.
