I have made my generous donation to the Cuccinelli campaign today. I remember Terry McCauliffe from the Clinton years and he is a big a lying Alynskyite partisan piece of excrement as you can get.Hummm, will ObamaCare fiasco effect the gubernatorial race in Virginia?
Republican Ken Cuccinelli has been trailing in the polls behind Democrat Terry McAuliffe but the tide seems to be turning and it may all be because of .... ObamaCare!!!
If the Republican wins, it will because of ObamaCare!!!
Wait, the Va. governorís race is a dead heat?
By Norman Leahy - October 24
Another day, another poll, this one from Wenzel Strategies, which finds the gubernatorial race is Ö a dead heat.
Thatís right, according to these numbers:
Democrat Terry McAuliffe leads Republican Ken Cuccinelli by a 41% to 40% margin, with Libertarian Rob Sarvis winning 10%. Another 9% of likely voters said they were yet undecided in the race.
So how do we get to these figures?
The Wenzel Strategies poll, using a turnout model that is closely balanced, includes a sample of 28% Democrats, 26% Republicans, and 46% independent voters. This reflects the swing-state tradition of Virginia that has lately leaned toward Republicans in statewide, non-presidential years, but has tilted to the Democrats in recent presidential elections.
Using a turnout model replicated by Quinnipiac University in its recent survey, weighting the sample to include 33% Democrats, 25% Republicans, and 42% independents or minor party supporters, McAuliffe leads with 43%, compared to 38% Cuccinelli, 10% for Sarvis and 9% yet undecided. This reflects a slight tightening of the race, compared to the Quinnipiac survey that showed McAuliffe with a 7-point lead.
Virginians better be careful what they wish for.
