Final Results of VA-02 Dems Poll: Elaine Luria 45.0%, Karen Mallard 41.3%, David Nygaard 10.2%, Gary Hubbard 2.1%, Shaun Brown 1.0%, Ernest Porter 0.4%


And yet one more district…Democratic candidates to take on Rep. Scott Taylor (R) are Ernest PorterKaren MallardElaine LuriaGarry HubbardShaun Brown and David Nygaard. See below the poll for video of the VA-02 Democratic forum a couple nights ago to learn more about the candidates.

P.S. I really want to see one of these polls hit 1,000 votes; so far, though, VA-10 and VA-07 petered out (e.g., almost nobody else voting, candidate percentages staying about the same) around 650 votes. We’ll see about this one…

UPDATE 11:56 am Friday – OK, I’m ending this poll as the number of votes is barely budging at this point and the order of finish has been stable for a long time.

  • Greenroom

    You can vote more than once if you log-in on different devices. Not sure of the validity of this poll

    • It only allows one vote for each IP address, but yeah, of course these aren’t scientific polls…just like newspaper polls, etc.

      • Greenroom

        I get that it is not scientific. I just want people to take these with a grain of salt. There may be some people voting more than once, so hence we may not know what is really happening. peace~

        • I mean, anyone who doesn’t take online polls with a grain of salt….let’s just leave it at that.

        • LibertarianDemocrat

          Dude… just have fun with it. My preferred candidate in the CD-5 poll didn’t win. I’m not sweating. 🙂

    • Garry Hubbard

      I agree. I may not be as well know as the other candidates but i am a true progressive. I have never voted republican unlike others. Take a look at my facebook page and website. Garry Hubbard for congress and http://www.garryhubbardforcongress.com. I am glad to see the other candidates using some of my platforms and talking points.

  • LitShips

    I’m glad to see that Elaine Luria is in the lead so far. She’s a woman of integrity and class. I hope she gets the nom.

  • LibertarianDemocrat

    I’m sorry, how can anybody vote for Shuan Brown? She was a disaster!

    • Note that 99% of poll respondents did NOT vote for her.

      • LibertarianDemocrat

        Oh, I know. And glad to see that!

        But still… who are those eight people? Like all eight of her personal gmail accounts?

        • No idea, but my focus here is on the two candidates who got 86% of the vote combined – Elaine Luria and Karen Mallard, one of whom almost certainly will be the Dem VA-02 nominee.

          • LibertarianDemocrat

            It’ll definitely be one of those two, no doubt. The results here probably reflect the feeling I’ve gathered; Luria with a slight lead, but Mallard with passionate supporters (The incredible Susan Mariner being one of them). I (like the DNC) was hoping Lynwood Lewis would run, but as the great Mick Jagger once said…

            I don’t live in the district, but I love the area. I know that the last Democrat to win there was waaaaaay out of his league. That sh*t can’t be repeated. Democrats need a smart candidate who is in if for the long hall, because even if 2018 and 2020 go our way, the 2nd (and all the other competitive districts) will need people capable of justifying some controversial votes.

          • Agree that Mallard has passionate supporters – and Susan Mariner, who is a superstar IMHO.
