Poll Shows Tightening Race For Virginia’s Statehouse   1 comment

Back at the beginning of the year, I talked about 6 political races that would take center stage this year…one of those being the Virginia Gubernatorial election to succeed term-limited Gov. Bob McDonnell(R). Well…if a new Christopher Newport University poll says anything, it’s going to be a nail-biter come election time. Results are as follows:

  • In a head-to-head battle between former DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe and current Va. AG Ken Cucinelli, McAuliffe leads 33-30 w/31 percent undecided
  • If outgoing Lt.Gov. Bill Bolling mounts an outside challenge, McAuliffe & Cucinelli would be tied 27-27 w/Bolling drawing around 9 percent of the vote

If anything, this election will likely hinge on whichever side has the better GOTV organization and whether the turnout matches that of 2012 or 2009; if it’s the former, chalk the advantage to McAuliffe…if it’s the latter, however, Cucinelli might have the advantage. If Bolling enters the race, however, all bets would be off.

Pro President Obama Blog

To paraphrase President Obama's speech on 12/4/13 to the Center For American Progress: Our strength is grounded in our individuals, civic, religious and business leaders working and making things happen. But government can't stand on the sidelines; it can and should refocus our energies on building an economy that grows for everybody. I remain confident that the future still looks brighter than the past.
