How do you drop 7 points in the polls in two weeks? Easy if you’re Creigh Deeds. Use disrespectful terms like “young lady” to a reporter and then play coy with your plans to raise taxes in a recession. This dropped Deeds to a 9 point deficit.
With the newest polls all indicating a surge by Bob McDonnell, it would appear that the initial thesis bounce has dropped and voters are now realizing that Deeds has no plan for Virginia’s problems. In addition, the decision by Doug Wilder may be a mush larger concern than Democrats let on.
