The latest Quinnipiac Poll shows President Obama opening up an 8 pt lead over Romney in Virginia.

In 2008, Obama was the first Dem to carry the state in 44 years.

Virginia (VA) Poll * March 20, 2012 * Obama Back On Top In Virginia - Quinnipiac University Hamden, Connecticut (http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-centers/polling-institute/virginia/release-detail?ReleaseID=1721 - broken link)

I think Obama's just getting started in Virginia. The more that the DNC can expose the republitards, the worse it's going to get for Romney -- but that's assuming there's a clear-cut winner before the primaries.

I am careful not to make predictions, but I can't help but think that sooner or later (maybe in 2012, maybe in 2016 or 2020)...the republitards are going to pay for their pandering to the lowest common denominator. They're going to wake up and find themselves with a party of morons, run by morons, appealing to moron voters.

It's great news because Quinnipiac is generally pretty accurate and they specifically target that region.

If Obama gets Virginia, it's going to be a long night for Romney.

Not surprising.

Virginia + North Carolina = the educated South.

Which makes this not surprising either.

Despite Obama opening a wider lead in both VA and NC most republicans here will just auto drop them in the GOP collumn without bothering to look at polls. November will be so much fun.

Well, this result is totally predictable, considering they under sample republicans AND independents and of course, over sample democrats.

Based on the LAST election numbers, the republicans should have a party ID advantage, NOT the democrats.

Quote:
In 2011, the Republican caucus took over two-thirds of the seats in the House of Delegates, and a majority of the Senate based on the Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling as the tie-breaker.
Now, based on the LAST election and the one before that, in 2010, how does the pollster justify giving the dems the edge?

Romney will be the nominee. The two problems Romney has right now is that he is moving too far to the right to move back to the center. Also, the more people get to know Romney the less they like him.
