I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

SurveyUSA: McDonnell +17, Bolling +14, Cuccinelli +16

The final SurveyUSA of the Virginia Governor’s race makes it look like a massive blowout come Tuesday:

ARLINGTON, Va. – With one week until Virginia’s gubernatorial election, an exclusive poll for WJLA-TV shows Republican Bob McDonnell retaining his commanding lead.

The SurveyUSA poll dated Oct. 27 shows McDonnell with a 17-point lead over Democrat Creigh Deeds, 58-41. McDonnell maintains his lead across most demographics, including age, sex and income. Independents are breaking 2-1 for McDonnell, 60-38.

Thirty-eight percent of abortion rights supporters say they will vote for McDonnell, twice the percentage, 19, of anti-abortion voters who say they will vote for Deeds.

The poll also shows McDonnell with a 58-41 lead across Northern Virginia, where Democrats have done better in recent elections. Deeds has only led once in Northern Virginia, according to SurveyUSA polling, that was in the Sept. 4 poll, when Deeds led by one point, 48-47.

Republicans retain commanding leads in all of the statewide races. Republican Bill Bolling is beating Democrat Jody Wagner by 14 points, 56-42, in the race for lieutenant governor. In the attorney general race, Republican Ken Cuccinelli leads Democrat Steve Shannon by 16 points, 57-41.

The SurveyUSA poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

Come Tuesday, we’re looking at a very big day for the GOP.
