Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe is leading Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli 42 percent to 37 percent in the race for Virginia governor, according to a new survey by Public Policy Polling.

But the poll of 672 state voters also reveals that neither candidate is viewed very favorably. For McAuliffe, 33 percent of voters view him unfavorably, while 29 percent say they like him.

Cuccinelli does a little better in terms of favorability, with 32 percent of voters polled saying they see him in a positive light. But 44 percent of respondents say they have a negative view of him.

"The governor's race is shaping up exactly as expected. Voters don't care for either Ken
Cuccinelli or Terry McAuliffe," Dean Debnam, president of PPP, said in a statement.

"But at this point they have a bigger problem with Cuccinelli than they do with
McAuliffe," Debnam said.

The poll, conducted last weekend, has a 3.8 percentage point plus or minus margin of error.
