Just 27% of Virginia voters hold a favorable opinion of Cantor
Last week, Public Policy Polling released the results a new survey showing Virginians have a very low opinion of Eric Cantor (VA-07).
“This poll shows that Virginians are tired of Eric Cantor’s partisan political gamesmanship. Virginians are looking to Congress for solutions — instead, Cantor spends his time on power politics and focused on his own personal political ambitions.” said Wayne Powell, Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 7th congressional district.
“Virginians all across the state reject Cantor’s ideological obstructionism. Virginians remember that, after last summer’s earthquake, Cantor held disaster relief for Louisa County hostage. He delayed help for his own constituents to score political points with his Tea Party cronies in his own party. Even Republicans are growing leery of Cantor’s extreme partisan power grabs,” added Powell.
Just 27% of Virginians have a favorable opinion of Cantor. Across demographic groups, Eric Cantor has alienated Virginia voters:
