(( It's what pollsters call a statistical dead heat.
The margin of error is three and a half percent -- and the numbers are closer than that.
There are undecideds.
But the measure of comfort for the GOP is that every time the question's asked, Republicans are slightly on top.
Who would voters like to see have control of the General Assembly?
Statewide, 47- percent say Republicans.
44- percent say Democrats.
Nine percent say they're not sure.
In a gender breakdown, 52- percent of men want a Republican legislature.
Only 42- percent of women feel that way.
Along racial lines, 56- percent of white voters favor Republican control -- compared to two-percent of black voters.
Of course, voters aren't picking a party, they're picking a person.
But looking at individual races-- in the State Senate, the numbers go 46- percent Republican, 41- percent Democrat, and 13- percent still not sure.
In the House of Delegates it's closer.
45- percent favor Republicans.
42- percent favor Democrats.
And again, 13- percent are unsure.
Top Republican George Allen has increased his favorable job performance rating one point, to 54, over the last three months.
sot standup


Virginians have a new "single most important issue."
And it may favor Republicans.
For the first time under the Allen Administration, taxes and government spending top the list of voter concerns at 27- percent.
That's still in that statistical dead heat with education -- at 24% -- which Democrats claim is their issue.
So pay attention on Tuesday.
