  •  Yeah. I don't see him carrying the state in 2012 (6+ / 0-)

    unless the economy improves significantly in Western and Southern Virginia. And with a GOP sitting Governor, it is going to be a lot harder to carry that state. But I agree, if the economy improves, he could carry Kaine over against Allen.

    •  PPP showed him winning a few weeks (5+ / 0-)

      ago. Certainly, that can change, especially if the economy doesnt improve, but if he was winning despite being at a low point of his presidency, then he could be in a good position in 2012.

    •  NOVA will probably (4+ / 0-)

      be an even bigger share of the electorate, and I suspect he'll also rack up big margins in Richmond and the Newport News/Hampton Roads areas once more.  I don't know if he will be able to do as strongly as he did in some areas of Fairfax, those "fiscal conservative but socially liberal" suburbs.  He should, given that his record is tailor-made for those people, but who the hell knows.
