Dem Northam leads GOP’s Gillespie by 17 in Virginia gov race

November 3, 2017

Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) leads Republican nominee Ed Gillespie by 17 points in the Virginia governor’s race, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

Northam received 53 percent among likely voters in Virginia, while Gillespie polled at 36 percent.

The Quinnipiac polls have had better results for Northam than other surveys. According to RealClearPolitics, Northam leads Gillespie by just 3.3 points in an average of several polls.

The results of the most recent Quinnipiac poll is up from the 14-point leadNortham held in one of the university’s polls earlier this month.

“In 2014, Republican Ed Gillespie came oh-so-close to upsetting Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, at least in part because 2014 was a Republican year and Gillespie benefited from the national pro-GOP mood. But with President Donald Trump‘s approval ratings in the dumpster in Virginia and in the nation, this year the shoe is on the other foot for Gillespie,” the assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, Peter Brown, said in a statement.

    You need to understand the polls don’t mean anything. The pollsters failed to predict Trump back in 2016 because they have their heads up the DNC back side so far they can’t see anything else. If the people of Virginia think the DNC options are better for them then they will vote for the DNC to run their state. If they get tired of the lying and stealing the DNC seems to perpetrate while in power they will vote for someone else. The people of Virginia have to make their bed and sleep in it so I hope they vote wisely this time. Best Wishes Virginia…..

      How right you are. Now, on Nov 5, 2 days after this story, the candidates are virtually tied, with Gillespie in the lead. Come to find out that the Northam campaign is tied directly to the disgusting ad showing a Gillespie supporter in a pick up running down immigrant children. And this is after he ran off about how bad the ad was in the first place. Add to this the removal of the candidate for LT Gov. from his literature in Northern VA because his Labor Union backers didn’t like him shows he’s all about the politics and not what’s right. (The Democrats are all about race until they are the ones harming the minorities, like in this event) Maybe, just maybe, the voter in VA will do the right thing and not accept the hate being fostered upon the right by the Northam campaign and the democrats.
