The trend continues! Gillespie shows gains in every poll. Ed Gillespie has moved to within 4% of Mark Warner, just outside the margin of error. In the latest Vox Populi poll Gillespie receives 40% of likely voters to Warner’s 44% with 5% going to Sarvis. Full results of this latest poll here.
UPDATE: Realclearpolitics.com has downgraded Warner’s chances of winning. Virginia is no longer solidly blue! More here.
I don’t see much enthusiasm for this election where I live. No signs in the yards, no phone calls or door knocking from either side. If it wasn’t for a few ads on radio and TV and the usual campaign sign corrals at stop lights, you wouldn’t even know there was an election.
What is funny is BE uses a questionable poll that still shows Sen. Warner winning 4 days before election, in a blue state? What is the point of the article, is it a “blue” article showing that Warner will when?
Looks to me like even the Cheney’s calls it for Warner?
Then you got Comstock bringing in outside help after she was declared the winner months ago????
While FiveThirtyEight moves Warner to +9 and up to a 99% chance of winning. So that happened.
Ah, and just what/who is this Vox Populi poll? Tell the readers who owns and runs this polling organization? Here let me give you some help…. Is that the “Cheney”?
How do you think Gillespie would do if a poll was conducted at the DNC?????
That would also be the ONLY poll that showed Eric Cantor in danger of losing to Dave Brat in the primary, so suck on that one…
The sample in this poll has 34% Democrats, 31% Republicans and 35% independents. It shows Obama’s approval/disapproval rating being 44%/56%.
Why don’t you provide a link to substantiate your claim like I almost always do? Prove it please?
Sorry, I forgot. Liberals are too lazy to simply Google something.
And if you’re too lazy to click on the link in that to bring you to the toplines of that poll, suck on this.
And here’s the June story about their Brat vs. Cantor poll, so here’s more that you can suck on.
1) Isn’t the Daily Caller again Cheney connected?
2) Isn’t the poll in the Daily Caller Cheney connected?
3) Wasn’t the poll wrong since it showed Cantor with a 12% lead just days before the election. Cantor polling at over 50% just days before the election? Now, the Republican’s want to say the same thing about every poll that shows them behind?
Using your own logic, the Republican’s will lose all those Senate races still in play in other states?????
Where is the credibility? Partisan Politics and way off in that Cantor poll.
How much Kool-aide can you drink?????
Back to you buddy!
Cantors own polling had him up 30+ pts days before the election. While this poll wasn’t exactly right, it did show the race was closer than anybody thought. Now the difference between this poll and the actual results was voter enthusiasm and turnout. Its tough to predict what will actually happen on election day.
Wrong is wrong.That’s why FiveThirtyEight changed the D +4 poll result into a D +9 for their analysis.
I think Gillespie will pull this off. Remember how pollsters had Cuccinelli dead in the water but he came within a hair’s breath of winning? Gillespie is almost in the margin of error, so I think he will actually pull it off on election day.
I, too, am feeling more optimistic about Ed’s chances. Not only is the gap shrinking, but all last week there were articles chronicling the disillusionment of single women, blacks, and latinos with the Democrats. And the articles showed that not only are millenials and independents disillusioned with Democrats, they are looking to the GOP for answers.
Could be a wild ride ahead.
