The last Zogby/News Max Poll (not exactly a liberal outlet) has BigMac up 43-36 over the Cooch. They maintain that Sarvis is holding at 9%. I still have my doubts about those numbers for Sarvis. Will 9% of the electorate really show up for a guy who has no chance of winning? How many of the current Sarvis voters will go to either BigMac or Cooch?
Other polls have shown the race tightening. In fact one that came out yesterday had McAuliffe’s lead down to two.
One interesting note is the lack of a big GOP rally this year. I remember in past years, like 2000 and 2001 the party having all of the statewide candidates assemble at a big open air space out on Rolling Road. Nothing like that this year. Guess things have changed a great deal since then.
