George Allen – Jim Webb Virginia Senate Race, With polls like this … Poll Credibility is on the line.


The Virginia US Senate race between (R) George Allen and (D) Jim Webb is being predicted as being one of the close election races on Tuesday. However, with the election polls being all over the place, one really begins to wonder about the credibility of polling.

A SurveyUSA poll has (D) Webb up by 7. However a Mason-Dixon poll has Webb ahead by 1 point and a Gallup poll has Allen ahead by 3. It would appear that the credibility of many that poll is on the line. However, when in doubt I will go with Scott Rasmussen who has been very reliable in the past. Rasmussen has it a dead heat at 49–49.

      I’m a registered voter in Virginia. I got to the polls at 6:20am and they were already busy. It’s raining pretty steadily here today, so I hope it doesn’t effect voter turnout.

      We also have 3 amendments. The marriage amendment, amendment to allow churches to incorporate, and tax-relief for land used for natural resources and new construction.

      I don’t like the idea of a church being a corporation, but like the idea of any tax break…especially since our land boarders Jefferson National Forest. The marriage amendment will be a HUGH issue after the fact regardless of whether or not it passes. In our conservative state, it most likely will.
