Polls, History Suggest Low Turnout in Virginia

On the eve of the Virginia elections, months of campaigning now hinge on voter turnout. Odd-year elections have much lower turnout than presidential years, making it difficult to predict the outcome with precision. UVA's Center for Virginia Politics expects turnout to be higher this year than in 2009, when the Republican candidate won a 17-point landslide. Such a turnout, however, would reverse a nearly 30 year historical trend in the Commonwealth. Nothing in recent poll, moreover, suggests that such an outcome is likely. Nov 4, 2013 10:27 AM PT

Quinnipiac: Cuccinelli Has Enthusiasm Edge

Quinnipiac's final poll of the Virginia Governor's race finds Democrat Terry McAulliffe with a six point, 46-40, lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli. Libertarian Robert Sarvis garners 8%.

Cuccinelli Brings in Ron Paul to Close

Ken Cuccinelli is spending the final day of his campaign for VA Governor barnstorming the Commonwealth, holding rallies with the entire GOP ticket and Sen. Marco Rubio.

McAuliffe Risks Campaign with Joint Obama Appearance

On Sunday, Democrat Terry McAuliffe will campaign in the vote-rich Northern Virginia suburbs with President Obama. The Obama appearance, coming just two days before voters go to the polls, is obviously intended to increase Dem enthusiasm for McAuliffe and boost turnout.

Dick Durbin posted an outrageous claim on Facebook that a House GOP leader had told President Obama that he "cannot stand to look at him" during talks on resolving a government shutdown.
