McDonnel by 11% because of good turnout in the heart of VA (the traditional conservative bastion of the state).

Obama has improved his numbers slightly in VA but that hasnt helped Deeds at all.

McDonnell will win. Deeds has run a poor campaign. He's run the Obama camapaign, he should have been courting the exact opposite voters that Obama courted.

I saw Deeds and McDonnell today on TV for the first time. It's no wonder to me now why McDonnell is winning. He projects a far better image, much more charismatic.

Deeds stutters. Nothing against that, but it makes him sound slow. He talked a bit like Foghorn Leghorn. Plus, his message is inconsistent and confused.

McDonnell deserves to win this one. It's clear his campaign has a stronger grasp on things.

Actually, Deed's problem is with his base. He's doing dreadfully with NOVA and black voters. If he could get Obama-type turnout, he'd win easily, but that doesn't seem to be happening.
