    McAuliffe is not so much popular in VA, as he is considered the lesser of two evlis, which in comparison to Cuccinelli is not saying much.

    In contrast, there is a clear objective for McAuliffe. This is an off year politically and there is a concern about voter turnout.

    McAuliffe’s campaign has been working to activate many of the same voters who carried Virginia for Obama in 2008 and 2012: young people, independent women and African American, Latino and Asian American voters. Some of those groups – young and nonwhite voters — tend to participate at lower rates in non-presidential elections. - Politico, 10/28/13
