Makes me sick to think Mcaullife will be governor of Virginia. Why would anyone vote for him?

1. Minorities want democrats.

2. Vastly growing numbers of Americans are addicted to government entitlements.

3. The homo "marriage" movement has snared more minds than ever before.

4. Most women in VA think their "right" to a dead baby is threatened, so they want the guy who'll guarantee it to them.

5. More Virginians, like more Americans, have grown to enjoy the chains of nanny-state, hyper-regulatory government. Freedom and self-determination frighten them.

Cuccinelli was a fool to attack Cruz 3 weeks ago. The margin has exploded open since then.

Sounds like a name recognition poll depends on where it was taken and how it was weighted.

If you live in VA and get out to where people meet like a bar or coffee shop. What are people talking about anything political, gus.taxes etc ? And is Cucccinelli talking about the same stuff in his ads ?

Or is he saying something different ?

GOP types in rallies appearing to call for a shutdown mixed with editorials about how many are suffering.

Republicans Want A Shutdown .

Interesting, sickoflibs! This video is put out by Senate democrats account on YouTube. And just how many suffered during the shutdown of April 2011? I didn't even know there was a shutdown in 2011. Perhaps this 2011 government shutdown is why Mitt Romney lost in 2012?

MSNBC and the other liberal talkers only used less than 1 second clips, were they taken out of context?

But in the longer term, VA is done as a Republican state, and as someone said in the other thread, it is becoming closer to MD every year.

I'm among those who were in denial of the political trends of Virginia... I still held out hope the conservatives in this state would be numerous enough to tip the scales... but the tidal waves of parasites from MD and DC, along with a massive influx of hispanics and Asians, have overwhelmed us.

I get it now... Virginia, my home for 18 years, is conquered territory.

The urban areas will never go away. One of the reasons we have lost in the past is because we write them off.

?? What should we do about urban areas?

The criminal RATs control the urban areas.

The urban are "last" to report voting results -- this is done to see how many ballots need to be fabricated to steal elections.

The GOPe doesn't fight it because they DO NOT care.

There is little talk much less action of fighting voter fraud.

This is how they will win elections going forward: (1) War on women, and (2) racism charges. It's all they got and it works -- unfortunately for the country.

Yes, he is... but it doesn't matter. The cities are teeming with democrat voters and NOVA is overrun with foreigners and parasites from other states. Last time I was in Falls Church (2010), I felt like I was in a foreign country.

Plus... face it.. the concepts of liberty, freedom and self-determination simply don't have the appeal they once did. Americans want to be ruled now. They accept the chains of oppression, so long as they get their guaranteed bowl of rice a day.

this one had a few more saying it clearly:

Caught On Tape: Republicans Touting Support For Government Shutdown .

So Dems went into this fight with these weapons, where's the clips of Dems calling for a shutdown?

That is why Dems had the edge on a shutdown and why they do in VA now.

This so called "Poll" could also be the standard democrat voter suppression tactic.

"Oh look- the poll says the democrat is 5 million points ahead of the republican. It's over. The democrat has already won. No need for you republican voters to get to the polling place on election day. Stay home. You haven't got a chance to win."

Hope they don't fall for this. It ain't over til it's over. Go vote.

I hope Cuccinelli fights back about this government shut down nonsense. The whole thing was over the massive nightmare of Obamacare and the repubs efforts to stop it . (This was absolutely the right thing to do-even if it didn't work out in the end.) They (R's) sent bill after bill to fund everything but O-care, the democrats insisted on forcing Obamacare on the people.

He should stay with a theme of how out of control the government has become, and the ACA disaster. And don't give up no matter what the "polls" say.

If the dem is 17 points ahead- make 18 times the effort to win.

The reason why the dems have an edge of the government shutdown is because there are RINOs out there such as John McCain ON TAPE claiming that the republicans in the House were responsible for the shutdown. I'm sorry but a republican saying that is far more credible to the low information voter than a democrat claiming that.

It's interesting that you have up you have up to this point excluded those McCain, King, Graham clips only a few days old that are on video and far easier to find on YouTube than it would be to find an April 2008 video claiming that republicans want a shutdown.

Sorry folks. I think this poll is overstating things, but the bitter nugget of truth is contained therein: Ken Cuccinelli is getting shellacked. I see it in the e-mails that the campaign is ending out, as well as in the polls, the number of signs, as well as the commercials. Ken Cuccinelli is being outspent, outgunned, out-communicated, and out-strategized by a left-wing knucklehead who shouldn’t even be in the running, let alone winning it.

And my beloved Virginia is turning bright blue in the process. Ugh.

I’m not one who is throwing in the towel on this race. As I said before, there are A LOT of Obama voters who simply are not going to turn out in this gubernatorial election. Most polls are including these people in their likely voter models.

I just see A LOT of signs for Cuccinelli in my neck of the woods, and hardly any McAuliffe signs. Again, my point is that this election really turns on who heads to the polls.

Put another way, does anyone really think that McAuliffe is going to do better than Obama in Virginia?

RE :”The reason why the dems have an edge of the government shutdown is because there are RINOs out there such as John McCain ON TAPE claiming that the republicans in the House were responsible for the shutdown”

And Dems had played these tapes of many of the same Republicans saying they wanted a shutdown.

I bet that if you had tapes of Dems at rallies calling for a shutdown to make Obamacare more socialist for example,, tapes playing on FNC every day during the shutdown, that all the RINOs would have lined up to hold out just like they did to vote against Obamacare in 2010.

Even the weakest RINO cant resist a winning hand.

RINOs get weak kneed, but how many are in solid red districts?

Because I was pointing out something different than you were.

Cobern did it too, said House will fold like a deck of cards.

In the end it was Boehner who made the final call.

"I read that Cuccinelli is a RINO, and has hired a McCain advisor and was critical of Cruz."

You read that, huh? Well, I live here, and I can tell you Ken Cuccinelli has a solid conservative record. When Obamacare was passed, he was the first state attorney general to file suit against the mess, immediately afterward. I don't know about any McCain advisor, but as for his supposed criticism of Cruz, a Freeper who was there---and I wish I could recall who it was so I could ping him---said it did not happen that way.

I remember that the hard left sources such as Daily Kos and Huffington Post were the ones who ran with that story; to my knowledge, no reputable outlets ever confirmed it.

There's never going to be a tape of a democrat advocating a shutdown of the government because democrats stand for BIG government. It would be like Nancy Pelosi coming out and publically demanding that all Planned Parenthood clinics be closed or the NRA coming out in support of banning all guns.

John McCain, however, did come out and blame republicans for the government shutdown and it was not a situation where he was secretly recorded... he said it on national TV.

That is why the republicans were blamed for the shutdown. Of course the dems are going to try to blame the republicans, but McCain dishonestly confirmed it

The GOP led House passed a bill that would have kept government open and that bill sat on Harry Reid's lap. He refused to allow a vote. The Senate shut down the government, the House bill would have kept it open.

I never saw McCain or any other RINOs rushing to the microphones to condemn the White House's "Make it(the shutsown) hurt the American people" statement.

Hey, I am not know for likin McCain and Grahamnesty but its too simple of a theme to claim that they were important enough to end it.

Losing 60% of GOP senators at the start, 80% of all Senators, when you needed at least 40% of all Senators to stop anything (that first vote) , was right there a claer message to the House.

The confirmation was that the GOP caved. That was the strongest, the GOP Senate gave up early on and then on deadline Eve Boehner gave in.

All Dems cheered,... ‘see, we told you so’

Nothing surprising,.

Newt caved exactly the same in 1996.

Here is a legit question, then, what can be done to make sure the conservative public image remains intact enough so that they actually can keep the House and win a majority in the Senate? They have about 13 months to do so, what can they do, and what progress is being made so that by Nov of next year, the public is still not holding the House GOP solely responsible for the shutdown and voting based on those feelings?

Thing is, the last prolonged shutdown, in 1996, led to Clinton winning election and a massive Democrat victory in Congress too. I think this is one reason why older Republicans, even those who agreed with the principles behind the shutdown, were not nearly as enthusiastic as Team Cruz to begin with. They may have remembered what happened in 1996 and feared that conservatives and Republicans did not have the ability to explain themselves that they would need to stop a repeat of it. As conservative stalwarts like PJ O Rourke and Thomas Sowell himself have said, this has been a serious issue with conservatives/Republicans for decades now.

So what do we do and what progress has been made as of now?

The thing is, Rasmussen< i had thought, was one of the few polls that didn’t artificially collect sample in favor of Democrats, unless I am mistaken. If they are reporting a 17 % Dem lead, that is utterly mortifying and heart wrenching.

In response to your question, the 2014 off-year election is not going to be the same as 1996, which was a presidential year. Most of the house districts are so gerrymandered that at most, either party will net maybe 10 seats. Republicans should (I said SHOULD) pick up Senate seats, based on geography alone.
