Independent voters are really taking a liking to Senator George Allen. My friend Miles would attribute that to George Allen's high favorables.
I would also point out to my good buddy Krazen that both
Kaine and Allen are on positive ground overall.
There was a huge swing with Independents...they've gone from Kaine +7 to Allen +13, which seems a bit drastic to me.
Kaine is only at 78% of the black vote, up from 71% in PPP's last poll; I imagine that Kaine will continue to consolidate those voters by election day.
