PPP's newest Virginia poll finds Barack Obama leading by 5 points, 51- 46. Obama's lead is unchanged from a month ago when we found him leading 50-45 in the state. He may not be seeing a bump from the convention in the state at this point, but he was in a pretty good position to begin with. Virginia continues to look like it may be something of a firewall state for Obama. PPP has now polled it 9 times this cycle, and President Obama has led by at least 4 points on all 9 of the polls. He's been ahead by 5 points, 5 points, 8 points, and 8 points over the course of the four surveys we've conducted in 2012. Barack Obama continues to look like the definite favorite in Virginia, said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. And its hard to imagine a scenario where Obama would win Virginia but lose the election. Obama has a slight advantage over Romney (49-47) in terms of who voters trust more on the economy and a wider (51-45) edge over Romney on foreign policy. Only 41% of voters say they approve of how Romney reacted to the situation in Libya this week while 48% express disapproval. Obama's leading 56-42 with women, 91-7 with African Americans, 63-30 with other nonwhite voters, and 56-37 with young voters. Romney has a 51-45 advantage with men, a 57-40 one with whites, and a 54-43 lead with seniors. Romney is slightly ahead with independents, 47-45, but Obama's party is more unified with Democrats supporting him 95-4 while Republicans go for Romney by a slightly weaker 92-7 margin. There has been a lot of talk about the possibility of Virgil Goode tipping the election

I hate the Poles!
Public Policy Polling (P.P.P.) is a U.S. polling firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina. P.P.P. was founded in 2001 by businessman and Democratic pollster Dean Debnam
My deceased father-in-law who was a retired Navy man said that the state of Virginia is supported by the government. If you include the military and all the government employees, he is about right. Thrown in the mooches on welfare and who knows what else and you have over 50% of the state.
Virginia could be very problematic if Obozo pulls off a win. If Obama gets Virginia, he only has to win New Hampshire, Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to steal the election. He won’t even need Ohio. We need a MAJOR ad buy in Virginia. It cannot be allowed to go Obama. Carpet bomb the opposition.
Romney is slightly ahead with independents, 47-45
Hate to say it , but I think Obama is going to win . Romney is a milquetoast candidate , and possibly a fall guy a la McCain . The average American voter is a numbskull .
It’s too far north.
So you consider the military, military retirees and veterans to be leeching off the government?
Of course these polls are completely accurate. Polls are only done at this point in time to carry an agenda. Garbage in Garbage out.
Pray for America
I’m not denying that Romney needs to fight for VA, but anyone who thinks PPP is credible hasn’t been following their conveniently timed sheningans this election season.
PPP is a classical textbook exercise of push polling. PPP asked in Ohio a few weeks ago if Obama or Romney had a bigger role in killing Bin laden.
PPP = a Pooping Platform and a Poor one at that.
Too bad the R’s decided to run another wealthy insider liberal.
Frankly, I have no ideal who’s going to win this thing and neither does anyone else .....sometimes I think it’s going to be Romney because of all of the negative headwinds against Obama, especially the economy and then at other times I can see Obama pulling off a close election because of Romney “too cautious” campaign and yes, despite what some Romney cheerleaders say here at FR or TV pundit land - I don’t believe that he has some super duper secret “aggressive” plan against Obama coming - more ads than before doesn’t mean aggressiveness.
According to Pat Caddell, Romney is running the worst of any campaign in history, worse than McCain.
No only that the entire state of VA is supported by the government. Government employees are starting to out number the patriotic ones that serve in the military.
I’ve never understood Romneys pedestrian campaign. Yes, he’s been more aggressive than McCain but that’s not saying a lot. His campaign makes strides and then disappear for a couple of days and then come out swinging again and backs off again. There’s no real momentum building but in spots
If Obama wins this election then this is not the country I want to continue to live in. What a miserable place this will be 25 years from now.
We will be outnumbered and no chance of ever regaining a majority again.
We could make up for Virginia if we won Wisconsin, but we would have to secure Florida (seems likely if voter registration is anything to go by), and Ohio (total tossup). I have a good feeling about Wisconsin because of Ryan. Our chances are still good.
Do you have any Midol?
