  •  And the Cooch is "neck-and-neck" for Va. Governor? (1+ / 0-)

    So far.

    State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) and businessman Terry McAuliffe (D) are essentially tied in the Virginia governor’s race, a new survey finds, even if Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) decides to enter the contest as an Independent.
    And this is the guy making news at the moment for:
    Cuccinelli called the Affordable Care Act requirement an attack on the Roman Catholic Church and religious freedom. He suggested forcing authorities to crack down on those who don’t comply.

    The Catholic Cuccinelli said he had spoken to a bishop who suggested he’d go to jail to protest it. Cuccinelli said he told the bishop, “Don’t take this personally — you need to go to jail.”

    If "blue Virginia" sleeps again this kook just might get in and continue to make a fool of himself and the state.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]

      PPP's first Virginia poll of 2013 finds Terry McAuliffe leading Ken Cuccinelli 46-41. When Bill Bolling is thrown into the mix as an independent candidate he gets 15%, with McAuliffe's lead expanding to 8 points at 40/32.
      The story of the race at this point is really how unpopular Cuccinelli is. Only 29% of voters have a favorable opinion of him to 45% with a negative one. Even among Republicans there are significant doubts about him- only 48% see him favorably with a much higher than normal 23% of voters within his own party seeing him negatively.
