"The challenge for Cuccinelli is stark: Nearly half of all voters view him unfavorably, and they trust his opponent as much as or more than the Republican on every major issue in the race, according to the poll. On trust to handle issues of special concern to women, McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli by 23 points."

Given that Virginia's last governor became known as governor ultrasound and was so committed to that issue that he kept at it to the point of costing himself a chance at the vice presidential nomination with Romney, leaving Mitt with Ryan. And Cuccinelli is far to the right of his predecessor. I was seriously beginning to wonder just what was in the water in that state because I kept seeing Virginia women on Rachel Maddow's show who were really fired up against the republican party in their state. I don't think there is enough time for Ken to lie his way out of this one, and he can't really do that anyway, he believes what he says. Men decide these issues for women and that's that. I hope he enjoys life as a civilian and doesn't get lazy on the 4.45 a day he'll get in food stamps, unless his republican brethren in Congress get their way and cut that even more. I'm not sure there is a less qualified man in American than Ken to govern anything, though several of his republican cronies do give him a good run for the money.

"McAuliffe’s strength among women is probably due in part to an intense campaign to portray Cuccinelli as a threat to women and the issues they care about most deeply. A new McAuliffe ad, for instance, features a Norfolk OB-GYN speaking directly to the camera about how she is “offended” by Cuccinelli’s position on abortion."

Am I the only one to think that the Ob-gyn is not "offended" but that she is in fact 'speaking directly to the camera about how she is "offended by Cuccinelli's position on women" ' - I would have thought that would make a lot more sense!

I am very glad that the Democratic ads are speaking to the heart and mind - and not pulling any punches for once - people need to be told the truth - God send that McAusliffe wins!

Yes let hope the entire democratic ticket win because they are a little better than the nutters opposing them

Not that I am sighing with relief yet, but this is good. Now if only Buono could be leading Christie in New Jersey.

McAuliffe is only up by 4% to date. Tight race.

Wouldn't it have been nice if they had run someone with a better record than McAuliffe who was a really crappy Dem chief.

Cuccinelli is a real POS and in a rational world would be down by 50 points.

The people vote. The people, when polled, answer what they feel to be an informed vote.

"what they feel to be an informed vote."

You can't be a fox head and informed at the same time.
