McAuliffe, a businessman and former Democratic National Committee chairman, leads Cuccinelli, Virginia's attorney general, 44 percent to 41 percent, within the survey's margin of error.

McAuliffe, a businessman

More like "giving people the business, man".

I thought this was lost a few weeks ago, but that new commercial of ‘Cuc’ helping free that guy ‘not guilty’ after 27 years is a great commercial. Shows him to be a real human.

Rumor has it the Macaulife team is trying to pull a “Macaca” on Cucinelli and is hyping some supposed anti-semitic statement he made at a dinner? Anybody else hear about that...

If it’s close, Dem vote fraud will assure a Dem win.....happens everywhere in every election.

I don’t live in Virginia but I suspect Terry McAuliffe is getting his slightly better poll numbers based on name-recognition and not his personal popularity. I can’t believe that Virginians would give a Clinton henchman the governorship of their state. Oh wait, Virginia went for Obama in 2012. Never mind.

It wasn’t Cucinelli, it was a Cucinelli supporter (some “Republican leader” speaking at a Cucinelli event, apparently). Won’t amount to much.

If McAwful wins (and he's only the RAT nominee because they were stuck with him and couldn't find anyone else), there is no hope left for Virginia. Might as well rename the state "South Maryland".

I was at the event yesterday. The joke was harmless and not even close to being anti-semetic. It blew up on Twitter yesterday, but using a false narrative.

Cuccinelli will eventually have to come out punching as a conservative, won’t he?

Isn’t a big part of the problem that he’s trying to soft-shoe it through Romney-style?

Could be totally off-base that’s just the impression I get from the other side of the country....

I noticed ads in the past few days that rightfully link McAulliffe to loathed Obamacare that the Cooch has been active in opposing. Apparently they are gaining traction.

Most of us have heard of Terry McAuliffe but I don’t think he’s a household name to the typical VA voter.

Actually a supporter made the joke not Cuccinelli and he has disavowed the joke.

Helping Cuccinelli is a settlement reached with the former Gov mansion chef today. So no trial to embarrass McDonnell and harm Cuccinelli 2 weeks before the election.

I have no faith in the people of Virginia, to close to the biggest teat in America, Wash DC.

The polling question specifically identifies Sarvis as a Libertarian. Very few if any of them will shift to the Democrat. Maybe half will shift to the Republican.

Then, among the undecideds, this is a three-way, not a two-way. Very few will be undecided between the Libertarian and the Democrat. Half are undecided between the major party candidates, and half between the Republican and the Libertarian.

There’s a lot of “secret strength” for the Republican in these numbers, because of the Libertarian in the race. Right now, I’m thinking, Republican 49, Democrat 47, Libertarian 4.

Telling jokes in bad taste are the purview of the Dumbcrap party. Republicans ought to know better.

True; The Old Dominion did tally more votes for the won than for the rino. But when we get a true Virginia-style conservative, Virginians come out of the woodwork to vote for him. Ken will benefit from this.

McNut has only been out in front because the GD libertarian is polling so high.
