Here’s why it’s so hard to trust online polls: campaign staff, like this “senior adviser” for Jeannemarie Davis, once again pushing people to a poll at Virtucon to have them rescue a candidate.
Only a little less troubling is the rather ridiculous talk of a “groundswell of support” for the Michael Bloomberg surrogate in Virginia politics, which is so patently ridiculous that it borders on deeply disturbing. Yes, activists tend to despise Davis, and it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s running high at the top of the list of least-liked Lieutenant Governor candidates.

Subject: reject negative voting; vote for Jeannemarie at http://virginiavirtucon.wordpress.com/
I have a favor to ask. Please reject negative voting, and instead go to http://virginiavirtucon.wordpress.com/ to vote for Jeannemarie Davis for Lt. Governor.
The posting of this first on-line poll surprised many, but revealed what we have been seeing all over the Commonwealth, a groundswell of support for Jeannemarie. In response, a poll was quickly added to let those who would rather attack a fellow Republican pick their last choice. Then suddenly a bunch of votes came in almost all at once picking Pete Snyder as their first choice and Jeannemarie as their last choice.
I am happy to report that despite that block of pro-Snyder/anti-Jeannemarie voters, more than 82 percent of those voting for a candidate refused to pick a “last choice.” Of the first 2,497 to cast votes, only 6.8 percent picked Jeannemarie as their last choice.
I hope you will vote for Jeannemarie at http://virginiavirtucon.wordpress.com/ as the best candidate to win the race for Lt. Governor by defeating the Democrats in the Fall, but most important I hope you will consider joining the 82 percent who refused to play into the Democrats hands in the fall by picking out a least favorite Republican.
With your help, Jeannemarie can win the Convention on May 18th and face the Democrats in November with tremendous momentum.
take this opportunity to show your support for Jeannemarie!
All my best,
Jeannemarie Davis for Lt. Governor
