We Will Do 5 Points Better Than We Are Polling

For all those naysayers out there, let me remind you that Republicans, especially in Virginia, ALWAYS, without fail, without exception turn out better than the Democrats and even more so in gubernatorial elections.

2001 - Earley was down by 10 points in the Washington Post poll going into the final weekend...he only lost by 5 points, and the that poll itself may have caused even more voters not to turn out.

1997 - Gilmore won by far more than the polls predicted.

1993 - Allen's election resulted in the same way.

1989 - Marshall Coleman wasn't even close to Wilder in the polls, but lost by only about 5,000 votes. Of course, there were other issues involved there too, but the trend remains nonetheless.

So have no fear...when you hear about Rasmussen Polls having us a couple points down perhap, realize that our ground campaign will put us over the go out and vote and do everything you ethically can to make sure our turnout is superior to theirs tomorrow.
