In our area, the numbers change drastically. 45 to 51 percent support Kilgore while between 29 and 32 percent say they would vote for Kaine. Meantime, Governor Warner is enjoying more support than ever. 58-percent of voters across the Commonwealth rate his performance as "excellent or good". That's up from 57-percent last year.
