It getting closer to one of the most critical odd-year Governor’s elections in US history. The 2009 Governor’s elections simply stated is a referendum on Team Obama and his policies.
Virginia-McDonnell makes it academic on Deeds by 12 points
Virginia is going to be a statement win for the conservatives as Bob McDonnell will win by 12 percentage points. McDonnell has set the standard for conservative candidates during this election with a broad reaching plan and a positive message. Creigh Deeds will see that his negative and baseless attacks towards McDonnell on his graduate school thesis and certain issues shows that the Deeds has been a major embarrassment to the DNC. Deeds also is going to lose because he lacks a plan on key issues like transportation and his campaign simply lacked a message. A McDonnell win will show that the conservatives are back and his win will set the standard for other Republican candidates in 2010. Final Result-McDonnell 57%-Deeds 43%.
New Jersey-Christie just squeaks it out by 4 points.
New Jersey is a close race and it should of have been over, but because of Chris Christie’s lack of discipline on the campaign trail along with the third party Daggett factor is a big reason why the race is getting hot. Chris Christie may have not realized he faced serious opposition in the Republican Primary against Steve Lonegan despite he won the race 56 to 42. There are so many issues that are affecting the quality of life in New Jersey that has taken down the status of a once proud state. The only reason why Corzine is in the race is because of the gift of the Daggett candidacy. However, the polls show only 4 in 10 voters are committed to Daggett . Those people that are uncommitted to Daggett are going to vote Christie and therefore the final result is going to be 45 percent for Christie, 41 percent for Corzine, and 14 percent for Daggett which would be a good showing for a third party candidate.
