Virginia's MOST popular Republican angered many in his own party by NOT supporting their candidates.
But NOW, Senator John Warner is bouncing back statewide.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=@file;


Acording to the latest NEWS 7 - Roanoke Times poll, Warner STILL faces a tough battle to get his own party's nomination next year.
Statewide, 53- percent of voters have a FAVORABLE opinion of John Warner.
That's up from 50- percent in July, and before that, 44 percent in January.
But within his OWN party, Warner's support has held steady since January at just 41- percent.
Meanwhile, economist Jim Miller has seen a SLIGHT increase in popularity as Warner's ONLY announced Republican challenger.
Miller NOW gets 39- percent support among Republicans -- which shows Warner's continued vulnerability in a party primary.
Democratic candidate MARK Warner-- no relation to the incumbent-- would face DEFEAT at the hands of either Republican, if the election were held today.
But in a GENERAL election, JOHN Warner is the MUCH stronger candidate against MARK Warner.
