But you're coming at an extremely multi-dimensional issue from a SINUGULARLY one directional fashion that simply uses information that helps to confirm your already decided upon conclussion and ignoring facts and information regarding the state and the race that conflict with it.
    I am aware of changes taking place that have made VA purple (particularly changes in northern VA). One has seen the electorate become more urban and more diverse (growing balance of voting power shifting to eastern/northern VA that now accounts for a large and growing share of the state's overall population). The 2013 election also continued the trend in which a higher share of the electorate had completed their college degrees. All of these factors have led VA to become less reliably Republican than in earlier elections. Nevertheless, all things being considered, this still should have been a GOP victory given the convergence of an abnormally weak/highly flawed Democratic nominee and issues related to ACA rollout. I'm not sure how much the McDonnell-related issues played into the vote, but didn't see a large impact in the early exit polling data. Cuccinelli might have won the VA of the early 2000s. He was not positioned to win VA in 2013. The flawed opponent and ACA issues masked what could have been a much bigger defeat.

    In spite of the lies the Clinton clone put in his ads and the money the dems spent on their third party shill, the biggest problem was the RINO's controlling the Reps money. They didn't like Cuccunelli so they wasted their money on the fat a** in NJ. They should be run out of the GOP and with any luck they will be.

    Try again.....and get a grip on those numbers of Two Largest Unions in the Country that work out of DC. You might then have some sort of clue.
