Goode news everyone (in my Prof Farnsworth voice)! Virgil Goode will be on the ballot in Virginia.
Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. will remain on Virginia’s presidential ballot after state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II concluded an investigation into fraud allegations leveled at Goode by the state Republican Party.
Why is this important? Goode isn't anyone that we would ever vote for - he is very right wing. But some percentage of the voters would vote for him instead of Romney, which makes it even harder for Romney to win VA.
A Washington Post poll of Virginia released this week showed Goode getting 2 percent support among registered voters, while Libertarian Gary Johnson got 4 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein took 1 percent. President Obama led Romney in that five-way matchup, 48 percent to 40 percent.
