Obama 2012

This is awesome. I just don't see the GOP winning without Virginia. It's possible but extremely unlikely.


I have a question. According to the CNN exit polls, the 2008 Virginia electorate represented 39 democrats and 33 percent republicans. A plus 6 spread.

The 2008 election was a year of historical turnout for Democrats, one that has not been matched since and the 2009-2010-2011 elections have largely proven.

This poll shows a Democratic spread of 39 percent to 32 percent GOP, a +7.

Is it really realistic to assume the spread in 2012 will beat the 2008 spread? Doesn't seem to make much sense.

I'm predicting Virgil Goode polls in double digits in Virginia as Conservative Democrats [there are a few] and disgruntled GOP'ers flock to the obvious alternative.... Darryl Holland -- Henry County

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
