Poll in Staunton News Leader

There is a poll in the Staunton News Leader asking folks whether they think Gov. Tim Kaine's veto of the death penalty bills should be upheld. It also asks whether the smoking ban should remain. The poll is at the very bottom of the page so it's easy to miss.

Blessedly, the Washington Post and Staunton News wrote an editorial this morning asking legislators to uphold the governor's veto with regard to the death penalty.

More good news for reasonable people, too. As you can see from the poll results, a majority of Virginians think the General Assembly should uphold Kaine's veto and smoking ban initiative.

Go Kaine! Virginia already leads the nation in executions since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, except in Texas.
