Posted on 05/02/2012 9:47:32 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
Virgil Goode is a former Congressman from Virginia as well as the current Presidential nominee of the Constitution Party. He has lived in Virginia all his life and the family name Goode means something in the area due to he and his fathers political careers. Now Public Policy Polling has found that Goode scores 5% against Obama and Romney in Virginia, even when an Other option is included.
Another interesting angle in Virginia is the candidacy of former Congressman Virgil Goode as the Constitution Party candidate for President. We find him polling at 5% in a three way contest with Obamas lead over Romney expanding to 12 points at 50-38. It seems unlikely Goode would ultimately get 5% but anything he gets could help flip the state to Obama given how small Romneys margin for error there is. Goode gets 10% from those describing themselves as very conservative, suggesting that Romney does still have some work to do with the far right.As always, the disclaimer here is that polling numbers for third parties and independents tend to decline as we approach election day.

Great news! Lets all get behind Goode so obammy wins VA!
NO third party. Unite and vote zero out first. THEN let us work on Mittens when he’s in the WH. I say this as a Perot voter who learned her lesson the hard way.
I’ll be wasting my vote on Goode in November. Its not like Romney can win anyway so I might as well keep possession of my soul.
anyone else remember how happy we were that Green Party guy was doing so well back in 2000?
Fantastic. This Goode guy will help me like that hack from Quincy, Cahill, helped my good friend Deval. Maybe the DNC could sneak this Goode fellow some benjamins to keep him around. Well anyway, thanks for good news, and keep up the good work. You are one of our hardest workers. All the boys up in Chicago are starting to notice you. Axelrod thinks you could rise far in the organization.
Barack Hussein Obama.
H. Ross Perot-——>20% or the popular vote-—>0% of the Electoral Vote
George HW Bush—37% of the popular vote—>31% of the Electoral Vote
Billy Bob Blythe—>43% of the popular vote—>69% of the Electoral Vote
Your strategy is to destroy the country in order to save it.
Have learned my lesson from past election mistakes; have lived long enough to have made a bunch. Gonna vote my conscience now on and that means for Conservatives only. Other Republicans will have to get elected without me. No apologies. Not any more.
NO third party. Unite and vote zero out first.
Absolutely. Concentrate on the important task of getting zero out - it is a matter of life or death of our America. We will just kick Romney to the curb the next election if he doesn’t cut the mustard. Our endeavors will take years to accomplish - it took that long for the communists/marxists to get us where we are today. First things first - get zero and Mrs. zero out of our White House.
No agenda here...Tampa is really starting to get interesting.
Not me. I'm writing in Alan Keyes. Unlike Goode, Keyes actually has experience running against Obama and I'm sure he's compiled a thorough list of "lessons learned" from his razor-thin 2004 Senate finish.
Alan Keyes! Winning!
Just enough to give Obama Virginia...
Not had enough Hope-N-Change yet, folks?
Keyes experience in running against Obozo is getting beaten by 60% of the vote.
If true, this is not a welcome development.
"I can win without doing anything for conservatives. Therefore, why should I give a jigger what any of them think about anything? With a compliant Congress I'll be able to do whatever I want, and conservatives won't do diddly to stop me. Thanks conservatives, I luv ya bunches!"
Signed, Mitt Romney
Or, looked at another way, half of Virginia is hopey-changey, 5% are solid, level-headed conservatives, and 38% are spineless go-along-to-get-along types who don’t have the character to actually vote their consciences instead of who a political party tells them to vote for.
Anybody who claims to be voting on principle or “to save their soul” strikes me as a complete and total hypocrite.
Do you shop at stores that donate to Democrats or liberal causes?
Do you eat at establishments or liberal causes?
Do you employ the services of individuals or companies that donate to Democrats or liberal causes?
Why would any of these be any different than what you claim to be doing? You can say that you won’t vote for Romney because he isn’t ideologically pure (as idiotic as that may be). If you honestly believe that God is going to punish you for voting for Romney, then you damn well better believe that God is going to punish you for where you eat, shop, or buy your car insurance.
Then again, your boy Obama thanks you.
If everyone who claims to be a conservative or anti- socialist got behind Goode and dumped the socialists, Goode would WIN.
So... What are YOU waiting for?
The Falcon Party is very unhappy with this. They were counting on your vote.
Like a lot of other soft conservatives, he'd rather lose with someone safe without trying, then take a chance on losing with a decent candidate but having actually tried to do something.
I can hear Obama and Axelrod now: “Go Virgil GO! Go Virgil GO!!! Help us keep Virginia!!!!!”
(Where’s Ralph Nader when you need him?)
Good arguement. To bad it’s wasted because it’s apples/oranges thing..
Last I checked Walmart, Progressive, Arbys etc are not running to be the leader of my country.
Wrong my FRiend, Alan Keyes only lost to Obama by 43 points. He could easily make that up this time around as a write-in candidate! It's his time! If not now, when? Teach the establishment a lesson - Vote Alan Keyes for President (write-in) 2012.
C'mon now. Obama edged out a victory over Keyes by a mere 43 points, undoubtedly due to voter fraud. Keyes is rested and ready!
Alan Keyes! Winning!
If everyone else on this forum gets to be totally delusional, I want to as well!
Have reconsidered whether to vote for Romney or not due to your multitude of well-thought-out insults. Insults always make me change my mind. /s
Answer is still no. And after your flaming post: NO!
That’s the spirit. I’ve got a horse running in the fifth race at 1,000,000,000 to 1. I know it has only three legs, but I think it could finish in the money. Your the kind a guy I’m looking for to bet on this horse. So are you in?
So what he’ll lose by 30-40% this time. Get serious!
That's probably enough to mortify Boling and his running dog Mittbots.
That’s madness - I WILL NOT COMPROMISE - I found a thing once that I disagree with Keyes on. Could have been some foreign policy issue, might have been pizza topping, I forget. I’m writing my name in; any one else is a disgrace to my principled principles.
Keyes for President. He will not keep you up late on election night!
Congrats Cong. Goode for giving Obama Viginia.
A vote for Virgil is a vote for a future, and a new political party in Virginia. Sure, it'll be mostly Republicans, but it might even attract Douglas Wilder and his half-million followers.
Oh, I see. So it’s OK to give your money to people who want to destroy the country as long as you do it through an intermediary and pretend you didn’t know.
Truth hurts, doesn’t it?
I noticed you didn’t address any of the points I made.
Exactly! I live on the east coast so I'll be able to go to bed early knowing I'll be waking up to a sunny day in America and a Alan Keyes landslide!!!
Alan Keyes! Winning!
That's when he went out and hired an activist FOR gay marriage to be his foreign policy advisor ~ like he'd be sending that dude to Saudi to negotiate oil policy eh.
If he had asked one single Republican about that beforehand he'd learned all about 2006 when the Democrats and the MSM beat us around the head and shoulders over the question of homosexuality in the ranks ~ see: Mark Foley, Senator Craig, RNC Chairman Mehlman, ........ and others.
It's pretty clear Romney is running in the wrong party, and for the wrong office. We need to see some real campaign pros get to work and find us a legitimate candidate. Else, we need to vote for ANYBODY BUT ROMNEY OR OBAMA.
Didn’t they invoke the mercy rule on Keyes’ last election. They called it for his opponent the second week of October.
I was going to do the same thing but when I reflected on my life over the years, it seems that I've flip-flopped on some issues and I just can't bring myself to vote for a flip-flopper!
Leftwingtards want public policy to be made on the basis of what they imagine hypocrisy to be against ~ which is just crazy talk ~ but we know that.
Jesus also told us to not bother with our neighbors sins when we ourselves are consumed with it.
I bet you believed in Santa Claus, and then like a weasel flip flopped over the fat bastard.
Let’s get behind Mittens...’cause he’s ‘OUR’ Socialist.
Yes, that’s sarcasm. I hope he polls better than 5%, then, maybe, the GOP-e will take a bit of notice.
Either you’ve forgotten the /s, or your tagline is incorrect.
With Romney as the GOP presidential nominee, then if conservatives vote for “ANYBODY BUT ROMNEY OR OBAMA” it will result in four more years of Obama. No, thanks. I’m not handing the Supreme Court on a silver platter to some Marxist just so I can say “don’t blame me, I voted for Virgil Goode” (or some other third-party candidate with a 0% chance of winning).
If Obama wins VA, he will win reelection (unless he loses in both OH and PA). Goode’s intentions may be pure for all I know, but the effect of his candidacy will be to help the Democrat Party for which he ran for so many years until he left in 2001 in anticipation of GOP redistricting.
You are absolutely incorrect and being dishonest.
“Do you shop at stores that donate to Democrats or liberal causes?”
No, not if I find out about it.
“Do you eat at establishments or liberal causes?”
No, and I do not and I have not used any Heinz products since lurch.
“Do you employ the services of individuals or companies that donate to Democrats or liberal causes?”
Not if I can help it and in my own business, I have a bulletin board with nothing on it but the truth about obama, the dims and leftist republicans. I do not care if dims do business with me or not. If they are offended... they can go their own way. dims that are open about it get nothing from me.
“Why would any of these be any different than what you claim to be doing?”
If you have to ask then you cannot possibly understand.
“You can say that you wont vote for Romney because he isnt ideologically pure (as idiotic as that may be).”
Again, you are misunderstanding... we do not seek purity... but we do demand someone that has actually got a record in their past of supporting some of our Conservative ideology... not someone that has changed every tenant of the past belief system to attain the nomination of the Republican party.
“If you honestly believe that God is going to punish you for voting for Romney, then you damn well better believe that God is going to punish you for where you eat, shop, or buy your car insurance.”
Blasphemer... you are not GOD and you do not speak for HIM. Do not even try.
“Then again, your boy Obama thanks you.”
He is your boy... by supporting mitt you assuring obama’s win because mitt can't win and never could... he couldn't even beat mccain in the primary... and carter has all but endorsed him... and so has soros.
I avoid them as much as I can. however, what they do with their money is what they do with THEIR money after I purchase something of value.
I give them money, they give me a product of value.
I’ve been known to TAKE money from these companies when I do contract work for them. They pay me for something of value I give to them.
I give Mitt my vote, I get nothing of value in return.
You know what’s sad? Let’s draw a hypothetical situation when Virgil Goode and Mitt Romney had equal chances of beating Barack Obama.
I’d bet that the large majority of the FReepers on here whining about third parties would *still* vote for Romney, simply because of the fact that they *prefer* a RINO to a real conservative.
