New Poll: Clinton Up 49%-43% in VA; Orwellian “Right to Work” Amendment Losing; Dems/Reps Polar Opposites on Muslim Immigration


Interesting findings in this new Winthrop University poll of Virginia

First, Clinton leads Trump 49%-43% with just a few days left to go. Note that this poll was in the field from 10/23 to 10/30, so 2+ days post-Comey news.

Second, I sure hope this finding is accurate and that the Orwellian-named “right-to-work” (aka, “right-to-be-poor,” “right-to-maximum-corporate-profits-while-screwing-over-workers”) constitutional amendment will go down to defeat on November 8.
Finally, note the party split on restricting Muslim immigrants? Overall, 84% of Dems say either “strongly” or “somewhat” should NOT restrict immigration of Muslims to America, while 68% of Republicans say that Muslim immigration SHOULD be restricted. Which one’s the party of xenophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry, again?

    Martin O’Malley to Campaign for Clinton & Kaine in Hampton Roads & Richmond

    On Thursday, November 3, former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley will campaign for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine in Richmond and Hampton Roads. At volunteer appreciation events, O’Malley will discuss the clear choice on Election Day between Clinton and Kaine’s vision for an inclusive America that is stronger together with an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, and Donald Trump’s dark and divisive vision that could tear our country apart.

    With more people voting in this election than any in history, O’Malley will talk about the importance of electing Democrats up and down the ticket and urge Virginia voters to visit iwillvote.com to ensure that they have all the information they need to vote on Election Day.

    What about the other amendment that will be on the ballot, which deals with a property tax exemption for a surviving spouse of a law enforcement officer, firefighter or other emergency responder who is killed in the line of duty?
