Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie has a huge lead on Democratic candidate Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam two weeks before the election, according to a new poll.
Gillespie leads Northam by 8 points, 41 to 33 percent, among likely voters in a Hampton University Center for Public Policy poll released Wednesday.
This new poll is a positive sign for Gillespie, who President Donald Trump endorsed in early October. Vice President Mike Pence, who spoke at one of Gillespie’s campaign rallies in Abingdon, Va., also endorsed him.
This is the second poll in recent months with Gillespie leading over Northam. A Monmouth University poll released Oct. 17 showed Gillespie with a 1-percent lead over Northam. The latest poll from Real Clear Politics shows Northam holding a 5.8-percent advantage.
The new poll was conducted by the Hampton University Center for Public Policy and questioned 750 “likely voters” registered voters in the Virginia General Election. The poll was conducted Oct. 18-22 from a random sampling of 400 landline and 350 cell phones.
If this poll is accurate and the November 7 election has Gillespie winning, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) will openly move even more to the dictates of the “Communist Manifesto.” Will the American public continue to reject that philosophy? What concerns me is that when younger people are interviewed, especially those on college campuses, we hear the communist indoctrination that has been occurring for so long. We must continue to strongly oppose that destructive doctrine that is so prevalent within the Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrat) of today.
