Some McAuliffe allies hope a new poll showing a tied race will light a fire under unenthusiastic Democratic voters.

he didn’t view it as necessary for his electoral chances.The new poll also continued to show Republican voters are noticeably more enthusiastic about voting in this year’s election. Democrats say that while they’re confident about the longer-term trends in the state — Republicans haven’t won a statewide race since 2009 — the party could be in danger this year if it can’t energize its voters.

“I think we’re on track to be a blue state for years and years, because the growth here makes that inevitable. But until then, we have a lot of suburban voters who are very swingy and they decide these elections, up and down the ticket," said Kiera Hall, executive director of Commonwealth Forward, a group working to elect Democrats in state legislative races. "We will win this if folks turn out … but everyone should be very worried.”

I wish he would go away. Liberal control damages the lives of the citizens in the state. Who could be enthusiastic about voting for that?

Some democrats probably care about what's going on and either won't vote or vote for the republican. Polls should be OUTLAWED one month before every election! Thedemocrats dnc TerryMcAuliffe Send Michelle Obama in to campaign for you! She is almost more popular than her husband! Get the Dem women in your state out to pump for votes and carry your election! Women get things done!

That is a false narrative that media outlets keep parroting. It is lazy reporting. Our local Democratic Committees have been chomping at the bit to go, but rollout of the campaign ground game has been slower than expected. Now we are ready to go at 100 MPH. Vote for the guy that supports treating parents as domestic terrorists! What could go wrong?

an interview last week he didn’t view it as necessary for his electoral chances. The new poll also continued to show Republican voters are noticeably more enthusiastic about voting in this year’s election. Democrats say that while they’re confident about the longer-term trends in the state — Republicans haven’t won a statewide race since 2009 — the party could be in danger this year if it can’t energize its voters. “I think we’re on track to be a blue state for years and years, because the growth here makes that inevitable. But until then, we have a lot of suburban voters who are very swingy and they decide these elections, up and down the ticket," said Kiera Hall, executive director of Commonwealth Forward, a group working to elect Democrats in state legislative races. "We will win this if folks turn out … but everyone should be very worried.” Youngkin has been focused on those swingy, suburban voters in the final stretch of the race. His closing message has been predominantly pinned to education, where Republicans believe he can energize base voters and win over independents. He has also cast his faceoff against McAuliffe as a battle that stretches beyond the confines of Virginia. “This is no longer a campaign. This is a movement. It is a movement led by you, led by parents all over Virginia and all over America,” Youngkin said to close out a Tuesday night speech in Burke, Va., in the Washington suburbs. The Monmouth poll brought promising signs for Youngkin on that front. Education was the second-biggest factor cited by Virginians as they decide their choice for governor, trailing just jobs and the economy — and surpassing the pandemic. McAuliffe and Youngkin scored similarly in terms of trust on the issue, which represents a gain for Youngkin, who trailed McAuliffe on education in earlier Monmouth polls. “The education issue became even more heightened and it all started really in that second debate,” said former Republican Gov. George Allen, who has supported Youngkin’s campaign. “It grates people. I think it’s very helpful that we have a candidate like Glenn Youngkin, who is clearly an advocate for better education and safe schools.” Some Democrats tried to brush off the Monmouth poll as old news, saying they knew the race all along would be close. Others noted that a poll from the university at a similar point in 2017 had Republican Ed Gillespie and Democrat Ralph Northam also very close, in a race Northam would ultimately win comfortably. “Whether a poll shows them tied or up 5, they should be working really hard, because they know this is going to be a close election,” said Leopold. “I just remember in 2017 was going to sink Ralph Northam’s campaign.” Filed Under:
