64% of you back Virginia drilling offshore. The poll was close early, with "Yes" pulling away late.

Personally, I'm for offshore drilling. However, there's a trump card here: the U.S. Navy. The Navy opposes Virginia drilling offshore, as the waters are their training grounds. I'm not for risking the Atlantic Fleet to get it done.

The new poll question is on NATO expansion into the former Soviet Union. After the recent hostilities between Georgia and Russia, Germany has called for admitting Georgia into NATO. In addition Dick Morris has written that the most important lesson of that conflict was the need to admit Ukraine. One? Both? Neither? You vote.

The poll ends next Saturday evening, after the Virginia Beach City Council Retreat is scheduled to be completed. I should have more polling material out of it.
