New Poll Shows Huge Momentum Swing To Bob McDonnell Up 14 Points

See the results here:

A new poll from WVEC, the Virginian-Pilot and Christopher Newport University shows Republican Bob McDonnell is comfortably ahead of Democratic challenger Creigh Deeds in the race for Virginia governor.

Bob McDonnell: 44.7%

Creigh Deeds: 30.9%

Undecided: 21.9%

“They haven’t given folks a reason to say ‘I’m going to vote for Creigh Deeds.’ They’ve only given voters a reason ‘I don’t want to vote for Bob McDonnell.’ I don’t think that’s going to be a winning strategy,” Kidd believes.

Kidd praises McDonnell for running a “disciplined and focused campaign” and says he’s not surprised McDonnell is ahead.

    22% Undecided? 2 weeks before an election? I think that then becomes the Republican's greatest fear. Everyone (unless they haven't been tuning in) has realized this is McDonnell raise to lose. Whetehr he wins by 1 point or 14 point, a win is a win is a win. So, that 22% Undecided then becomes McDonnell's variable on the path to the governorship. Why is the 22% more of a threat to McDonnell? Surely Deeds, too, must be concerned of losing this bloc.

    Actually, not really. Deeds is already losing, he could (probably) care less the margin of the victory (so long as it's not too far into the double digits). So, this 22% undecided rate becomes a thorn in McDonnell's side because it gives the opportunity to have victory elude him at the eleventh hour. Simultaneously, Deeds has nothing to worry about as he's already losing and having the undecideds break Bob's way (or just not in a large enough amount to Creigh) wouldn't really hurt Deeds that much.

    Also, interesting that McDonnell's poll position seems in line with previous performance, but Deeds is under performing? I'm sensing all is not harmonious with Democratic voters.

  3. I would read and then ignore the polls. We've got to get out the vote for Bob and the rest of the GOP ticket on November 3!

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
