Posted on 10/11/2012 8:44:08 AM PDT by ReagansRaiders
Pollster John McLaughlin (not to be confused with the pundit) conducted a statewide poll of Virginia for George Allen's senate campaign this Mon. and Tue., surveying 600 likely voters. Unlike media and university polls, McLaughlin works for clients and no candidate wants to hire someone who isn't accurate. John is an ace pollster who I worked closely with for Steve Forbes in 1996, so I know that if he is going public with these numbers he is extremely confident in their accuracy as his entire reputation depends upon it. With that preface, drumroll please...
Romney 51% - Obama 44% - Goode 1%
Allen 49% - Kaine 46%

Please be true, please be true, please be true.
I know John’s young brother and partner Jim. He is an honest stand up guy. I believe this.
This looks more like it. I wonder what the party affiliation is for VA?
Good news indeed.
Please Lord, let it be so.
Internals on that poll are pretty consistent with Virginia. A basically even D/R distribution, 19% African-American, and a good male/female ratio.
If you want on/off the VA Ping List, please freepmail me.
If you see posts of interest to Virginians, please ping me.
Oh my God ! I can’t believe it! Please let it be.
Goode’s not taking as big a bite as many thought he would. Good news.
I’ll do my part.
Run like you are 20 points down in the election right up to the election..NO MATTER WHAT the polls say.
The Goode number convinces me this is accurate
I know Jim Mclaughlin too. I agree with your assessment of him.
I believe these numbers, too.
I think many of the Republican candidates around the country are getting a “Romney bounce.”

OBAMAPHONE LADY: Say WHAT?
“Please be true, please be true, please be true.”
As my barber said to me yesterday, just like he said 6 months ago, “Romney is going to win in a landslide”.
My barber is almost always right.
Dick Morris mentioned this poll last night on Greta. He said that this pollster is legit and respected. The results may confirm Suffolk’s decision to suspend surveys in VA, NC and FL.
We live in the western Richmond suburbs and have not seen any buzz whatsoever for Goode throughout this campaign. See a few Romney bumperstickers and O’bama bumperstickers now and then. In ‘08 even here in the burbs there were O’bama stickers all over.
Exactly...run like you are behind all the way to election day. No mercy.
