Skip to comments.Virginia Results (Romney +5)
Posted on 09/12/2012 3:03:12 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On the days of September 8th and 9th, Gravis Marketing, a non-partisan research company, and Capitol Correspondent conducted a survey of 2,238 likely voters in the state of Virginia. The survey covered the same questions as the August survey, which comprised questions regarding the presidential election, Virginias senate race, the direction of the United States, and the effect of a libertarian candidate on Romney and Obama.
Overall, from August to the most recent survey, Obamas 44% to 40% lead has turned into a Romney lead of 49% to 44% in the most recent poll. Interestingly, Obama didnt lose votes, rather Romney gained previously unsure voters or voters that previously planned on voting for a different candidate...

They can expect a call from the AX Man, Axelrod, any minute now
How DARE they run a fair poll!
God bless the Commonwealth.
Finally some good news.
I didn’t see a D/R/I breakdown. Without that we don’t know what to make of the results.
If the Democrat pollsters say 5 points it is probably 10 or 15 points. Most sensible people are starting to see Obama for what he is. Most sensible people are starting to see the MSM for what it is. They are all making the country more dangerous with their radical left-wing views.
If you expect good news very often from either the "polls" or the Press Corpse, then you just don't understand the situation.
More interesting is that this same poll shows Allen leading Unibrow (Kaine) by 5. This is the first poll I’ve seen for that race that doesn’t call it a dead heat.
The media and Obama’s people were getting a bit cocky thinking that Virginia was in play this year. 2008 was an outlier where the downstate people didn’t show up. That won’t happen again. In a couple of weeks, Obama’s people will quietly pack up there, and put that effort into Michigan and Wisconsin, where they are far from being assured a victory.
Good. Let’s get Ohio, too.
Mitt Romney is within striking distance in NEW JERSEY and gaining in Washington state.
I had the exact same thought. They have probably overweighted the Democrats and the real poll is Romney up 55 to 45 the same as those not wanting Obamacare
Many Democrats will not vote for Obama. They know the out of control debt for four more years will sink the country.
I was getting worried. Kaine’s running TV ads nonstop, but I have yet to see the first one from Allen.
I was too but I just heard that a million dollars of ads are going up in Virginia for Allen. I haven’t seen any but that is exactly what I needed to hear. This year the Democrats don’t seem to be any better engaged then they were in 2010 when they lost badly. In 2008 we were totally out gunned by Obama’s money machine and the fact that McCain took federal funds severely limiting his ability to run ads.
Agreed. Hopefully Allen won’t trip over his tongue this time around.
Yes, I’m hoping for a good outcome this time around.
I despise Kaine. During his last days in office, he tried to make a deal to get a convicted murderer sent back to his native country, where the killer would have probably been paroled. The murderer, Jens Soering, and his girlfriend stabbed the girl’s parents to death. Kaine and his eyebrow are garbage.
I hope EVERY ONE of Allen’s ads emphasizes what an Obama bootlicker Unibrow is.
I think it will. I’m not seeing the bad signs I saw in 2008. There have been no problems getting people to volunteer this year. In 2008 in my area most of the time it was just me. Obama had twenty or thirty people every weekend in my area which is a very red district. I’ve yet to see anyone from OFA this year.
I think by and large this group trends toward Republicans by a point or two. They are not “Democrat pollsters.” That would be PPP.
I don’t expect it, it’s just nice to see.
Oh . . . OK
