Virginia’s Governor Race Is Getting VERY Close

Virginia Governor Polls 2021 and News: Latest Polls, Sep 26th

Polls show Terry McAuliffe with a small advantage over Glenn Youngkin. However, the poll range for Glenn Youngkin is huge indicating a high possibility of error.

Google Search data is not indicating a close contest as Youngkin trails Donald Trump on search queries. On the other hand, Google Search data also shows that the Democrat Ralph Northam was far ahead of Ed Gillespie at the same period in 2017. This is not sufficient evidence but certainly a fair enough reason to question the polls.

Republicans know their views on abortion access are too extreme for Virginia — that’s why they’re trying to hide them from the voters.

Originally tweeted by Glenn Youngkin (@GlennYoungkin) on September 25, 2021.

Thank you to @NorfolkAKA and @NorfolkAlphas for a great Candidates forum today! I look forward to working with your organizations to move Virginia forward and make it the best place to live, work, and raise a family.

Anyone else notice that @TerryMcAuliffe ‘s message is nothing but fear? @GlennYoungkin ‘s is one of optimism. Optimism always win. Remember “Morning in America”? #Virginia

Originally tweeted by Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) on September 25, 2021.

As governor, I was proud to work with reasonable Republicans to get things done. Make no mistake, Glenn Youngkin is no reasonable Republican. He is a Trump-wannabe who would take Virginia in a far-right direction.

Originally tweeted by Casey Flores (@caseyjflores) on September 25, 2021.

The @LogCabinGOP of Richmond, VA out door-knocking for @earley4delegate and @GlennYoungkin!


Originally tweeted by Republican State Leadership Committee (@RSLC) on September 25, 2021.

Virginia Democrats are in lockstep with Democrat-controlled Washington, destroying the state’s future with the same radical policies as the Biden Admin.

Voters are holding them accountable at the ballot box.

2021 Virginia Governor Polls and News: Virginia governor election results 2017

The last Virginia Gubernatorial Election was held in November, 2017. Ralph Northam was the Democratic nominee while  Ed Gillespie was nominated by the Republicans.  Clifford Hyra was the Libertarian Party’s nominee. The election result saw Democrats re-occupying the chair of Virginia Governor once again.

Virginia governor election results 2017

  • Ed Gillespie (R) – 45% of votes
  • Ralph Northam (D) – 53.9% of votes

The election had the highest voter turnout percentage in a Virginia governor election in twenty years and Ralph Northam won the election by the largest margin for a Democrat since 1985.

The state had been known to elect its Governor from the party that is not in the White House before the 2013 Virginia Governor Race. However, in recent years a state which was once reliably Republican at the national level has gradually shifted towards first becoming a swing state and has now shifted more towards the Democrats than the Republicans.

A shift that many believe is due to the growing population in the liberal-leaning suburbs of Northern Virginia now a Democrat Bastion which borders D.C. and Maryland, and the suburbs of Central Virginia i.e. the state capital of Richmond

Both its Senators in the US Senate are Democrats, 7 out of 11 House Representatives are from the Democratic Party. Both houses in the state are held by a Democratic Majority. Add to that the last time a Republican was elected to a Statewide office was in 2009.

In the 2020 US election, Biden won it by a margin greater than Hillary Clinton’s margin of victory in 2016. The Republicans have not won a single statewide election since 2009.

personally idk how this election will go, polls have McAuliffe at a 1-3 point lead, making it seem like he will win, but in reality it’ll be Much closer, remember Virginia in the 2020 Presidential Election was predicted to go 52.75% for Biden and 37% for Trump, but turns out polls were 7% off for republicans and 1.35% off for democrats- so if we gave McAuliffe an edge of 1.35% to what he currently stands and Youngkin a 7% edge, Youngkin would be winning gin the polls by a lean/tilt margin.
