We've talked about Texas and Florida's governors races which take place next year. but there is one a month away. Virginia, where R Youngkin vs. D McAuliffe. I'd classify Virginia as a solid blue state, yet McAuliffe leads Youngkin by just 4 points. Virginia where Biden beat Trump by 11 and Northam won the governorship by 10 in 2017. Where Democrats have a 10 point advantage over republicans in party affiliation. Yet this race is close, competitive when it shouldn't be. Why? Youngkin leads with Republicans (82% to 15%) while McAuliffe leads with Democrats (90% to 6%). Among Independents, the majority (54%) support Youngkin, compared to 35% who support McAuliffe and 9% who are undecided.


In the field of you never know, it's interesting that Republicans, 15% who plan on voting democratic will probably give McAuliffe the win. Republicans being responsible for electing a democrat. Republicans negating the advantage their candidate has among independents. Strange, but true. At least with a month to go.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
