Pollster: Obama Hurt Deeds In Virginia

A week after the Virginia Gubernatorial Election, one pollster has looked at the data and found that President Obama hurt Creigh Deeds in the Old Dominion: Democrats and the press are on a self-delusional kick that Barack Obama had nothing to do with the results in Virginia and New Jersey.  That’s fine by me.  The […]

An interesting pair of contrasting post-mortem articles in The Washington Post today make it pretty clear why Bob McDonnell rolled to an historic victory on Tuesday.

Today’s Elections And What They Mean For Obama

If Republicans sweep all three of the high-profile elections today, Virginia Governor, New Jersey Governor, and NY-23, we’ll no doubt hear much speculation on what that means for the Obama Administration. However, I don’t think that you can look at all three races as if they were one referendum on the Obama Presidency. Each one […]

Today, 3 months and 7 polls later, McDonnell leads by 18 points, essentially unchanged over the last three SurveyUSA releases, and essentially unchanged since late July. […]

The final Public Policy Polling poll of Virginia shows that Virginia Republicans stand to have a lot to celebrate on Tuesday night: Bob McDonnell leads Creigh Deeds 56-42 in PPP’s final poll of the race.

McDonnell is favored by 53 percent, while Democrat R. Creigh Deeds is preferred by 41 […]

Mark Warner Calls In Sick

It looks like the most popular Democratic politician in Virginia won’t be helping Creigh Deeds this weekend: Virginia Democratic senator Mark Warner has an extraordinarily well-timed case of the flu, keeping him from a day’s worth of events with increasingly doomed gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds. Seems might convenient, huh ? H/T: Riley

Riley at Virginia Virtucon has the news: Today, Roanoke College, Suffolk University and Daily Kos / Research 2000 all released their polls showing Bob McDonnell holding a lead of anywhere between 10 and 17 points.  Roanoke and Suffolk polled the downballot statewide races as well and found the GOP holding significant double-digit leads in both […]
