Silly WashPo. As much as you wish that President Obama has put Virginia away, it just isn’t so and even the president’s campaign knows that. He was in state today as well as last Friday and Joe Biden was here within the past week, too. You don’t spend time and money in a state you’ve already secured. (If you truly believe that he already has Virginia locked up, then you also probably thought Roger Simon’s POLITICO satire piece about Paul Ryan going rogue was real like some of your idiot colleagues in the press did.)
Here’s the latest evidence of that. The latest poll conducted in Virginia by Suffolk Univ. (which, by the way, has a better track record in VA than the Post based upon the 2009 election results) and just released tonight has Obama well below 50%, leading Romney within the margin of error 46%-44%. This poll was conducted Sept. 24-26 with a 4% margin of error.
Sorry guys, but there’s still a very competitive race in Virginia for the presidency.
