Hampton University Shows Gillespie With 8% Lead in VA

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Hampton University has apparently found an electorate in Virginia that everyone else is missing if their latest poll for the Virginia gubernatorial race is to be believed.

Ed Gillespie (R) 41%
Ralph Northam (D) 33%

This poll was done October 18-22 among likely voters. Now they did not, for some reason, include the Libertarian candidate in the poll as well as the fact that they seem to have a very high number of Undecideds left out there, but Hampton university is being pretty bold to go public with such a large lead for Gillespie in the face of such overwhelming contrary data. That being said, I do remember three years ago when there was a single pollster that showed Larry Hogan with a 5% lead in the Maryland gubernatorial race in 2014 despite a number of more established pollsters showing a large lead for the Democrat and in the end, Hogan won.

Moore Up By Double Digits in AL

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Some better news for Roy Moore than he received from Fox News earlier in the week from Strategy Research, who is showing in their latest poll a double-digit lead for Roy Moore.

Roy Moore (R) 51%
Doug Jones (D) 40%

Northam Leads Gillespie By 7% in VA

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

At 6:21pm on October 18th, Ed Gillespie’s Twitter account post a link to a Fox News article touting the recent Monmouth University poll showing him in the lead.

Meanwhile, an ACTUAL Fox News poll was released 21 minutes earlier at 6:00pm on October 18th that received absolutely no mention from Ed Gillespie.

Ralph Northam (D) 49%
Ed Gillespie (R) 42%
Cliff Hyra (L) 1%

This poll was done October 15-17 among likely voters.

Northam Surges to 14% Lead in VA

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

One day after Monmouth University became the first polling organization since June to claim Ed Gillespie had a lead in the Virginia gubernatorial race, Quinnipiac University has come out and shows Democrat Ralph Northam with a huge 14% lead which, as far as I can tell, is the biggest lead Northam has had in any poll since this race began.

Ralph Northam (D) 53%
Ed Gillespie (R) 39%
Cliff Hyra (L) 2%

This poll was done October 12-17 among 1088 likely voters. The poll yesterday from Monmouth University was done October 12-16. So basically over the exact same time period, we have two polling organizations who claim to be polling the same state show both Ed Gillespie and Ralph Northam respectively holding their biggest polling leads in this race at the exact same moment. Polling has just become insane….

Gillespie Takes Lead in VA, Moore/Jones tied in AL

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

So after making a comment earlier today about how Ed Gillespie has not held a lead in a single poll since June, Monmouth University has come out with a new poll showing Ed Gillespie up by a single percentage point.

Ed Gillespie (R) 48%
Ralph Northam (D) 47%
Cliff Hyra (L) 3%

This poll was done October 12-16 among 408 likely voters. On the flip side, things are not looking so good for Republicans in Alabama if this new poll from Fox News is to be believed.

Doug Jones (D) 42%
Roy Moore (R) 42%

This poll was done October 14-16 among likely voters.

Northam Leads Gillespie By Single Digits in Two Polls

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

We have two new polls out that show Democrat Ralph Northam with a single-digit lead over Republican Ed Gillespie in the bid to become the next Governor of Virginia. They come from Roanoke College and Christopher Newport University.

Ralph Northam (D) 50%
Ed Gillespie (R) 44%
Cliff Hyra (L) 2%

Ralph Northam (D) 48%
Ed Gillespie (R) 44%
Cliff Hyra (L) 3%

The Roanoke College poll was done October 8-13 and the Christopher Newport University poll was done October 9-13. You have to go all the way back to June to see any poll whatsoever that has Ed Gillespie in the lead.

Moore Leads By 8% in AL

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Polling has been a little slow across the board, but we did get a new poll in the US Senate race in Alabama late last week from Cygnal Polling that shows Roy Moore holding an 8% lead over Doug Jones.

Roy Moore (R) 495
Doug Jones (D) 41%

This poll was done October 2-5 among 497 likely voters.
