Poll: Half of Va. Dems Still Approve of Northam Despite Yearbook ScandalHalf of Virginia Democrats still approve of Governor Ralph Northam’s job performance despite the recent emergence of a racist photo from his 1984 medical-school-yearbook page, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Monday. Northam’s net approval has plummeted 41 points among all Virginia voters and 38 points among Virginia Democrats in the two days since the emergence of the yearbook photo, which features one man in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan uniform. The share of all Virginia voters who approve of Northam’s performance fell from 48 percent before the yearbook controversy to just 29 percent in the new survey, which relied on 291 respondents and was conducted this weekend.
