Virginia Is In Play As GOP Candidate Might Take Governorship

( )- Virginia, which is widely considered to be a Democrat state, could actually be in play in the upcoming gubernatorial election.

According to a survey conducted by former Trump adviser and pollster Kellyanne Conway, Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin currently has 42% support among likely voters in Virginia only six weeks away from voting day.

He is trailing incumbent Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has 46% in the polls, but the fact that some 10% of voters said that they are undecided means that the race is still anybody’s guess.

The race has been tightening in recent weeks, too, as early voters turn out to the polls to cast their vote ahead of the official polling day. According to another survey by the Washington Post and Schar School, which was released on Friday, McAuliffe is ahead of Youngkin by only three points – with 50% to his Republican opponent’s 47% among likely voters. There was, however, a margin of error of 4.5% percentage points.

It looks like this could be a dead heat, and it’s almost certain that President Joe Biden’s disastrous performance in the White House so far has something to do with it.

Last week the two candidates finally went head-to-head on the debate stage, a night before early voting began.

The Kellyanne Conway poll was commissioned by David Bossie, a former deputy campaign manager for Donald Trump, and was performed between September 17 and 19.

Let’s just hope those voters don’t forget the disastrous performance of the Democrats on Afghanistan by the time voting day comes.
