Why the major shift?

The Washington Post just endorsed Deeds. In a race where Virginians know little about the candidates, it could be an influence.

I'm not sure it is a major shift. There are not that many polls to look at. And the ones that are out there have small sample sizes. And every one of them have a sizable number of undecideds.

Looks like a pick-em.

Not only is there a large number of undecideds (especially a week out), but without any regional/media market breaks, it's tough to interpret. McAuliffe apparently just started TV advertising in DC this week ... which suggests he hoped to avoid the most expensive market and now sees that he has to cover it to win. Remember, if he had different numbers (anything showing him ahead), he would have released them yesterday or today to counter the PPP and Moran polling.
