Too many are flocking to the left. As the Nov. 2 ballot’s highest-profile contest, the battle for Virginia’s governorship has become a referendum on the Big Government approach of the out-of-touch, Democrat Left. As Virginia’s chief executive from 2014 to 2018, former Democrat National Chairman and consigliere to the Clinton crime family, few people epitomize establishment socialism better than Terry McAuliffe.
Glenn Youngkin, McAuliffe’s ascendant opponent, is a quintessential Republican office seeker. This successful outsider aims to harness his private-sector success and rein in a runaway public sector that has betrayed its citizens. Youngkin was co-CEO of the Carlyle Group financial house before this, his first, race. McAuliffe and Youngkin are tied at 46 percent each, according to an Oct. 16-19 Monmouth University survey of 1,005 registered Virginia voters. (Margin of error: +/- 3.1 percent.) While 91 percent of Democrats backed McAuliffe, 94 percent of Republicans supported Youngkin, as did 48 percent of independents versus 39 percent for McAuliffe. Just 6 percent of blacks favored Youngkin; 80 percent picked McAuliffe. But 32 percent of Hispanics stood with Youngkin, vs. 58 percent with McAuliffe. Youngkin must win. A message must be sent to all America.
