Swing state??? Not for the last 3 years, and only once since 1964.
"Recent polls in Virginia, which Obama won in 2008, have shown the president with an edge."
Polls, as in more than one? The only poll that puts Obama head, was the PPP poll that was conducted by idiots that think nothing has changes since 2008.
These 2 "news sources" should do a little checking. Virginia has voted extremely Republican in the last 3 elections. Democrats lost more offices in 2009, 2010, and 2011 than in the last 20 years.
Where do they find these idiots that write this trash?
