Terry McAuliffe, Ken Cuccinelli or Robert Sarvis? Speak Out

Polls show the Republican and Democrat candidates for Virginia governor virtually tied.

Polls are polls, and sometimes they vary widely and sometimes they don’t.

But here’s what virtually all the current polls show: Virginians aren’t thrilled with their choices of Democrat Terry McAuliffe, Republican Ken Cuccinelli or Libertarian Robert Sarvis for governor.

The most recent  Roanoke College poll shows McAuliffe with a two-point lead, 35 percent to 33 percent, over Mr. Cuccinelli, the state’s attorney general. Given the margin of error, at 3.3 percentage points, that indicates the race is virtually tied.

The third choice, Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, is grabbing eight percent of the vote, but the poll shows most people don’t know who he is — or that he’s even running.

So, now that we’re cruising up on October, it’s time to ask you: Who are you planning to vote for in the governor’s race? And why?

See the elections page on Fredericksburg Patch for more information.

Too bad but he won't go far. We need serious reform of our constitution and election process in particular to be able to make more 3rd party candidates viable as the Retro-pub Tea Bag party implodes.
