I sure hope youse guys are right.
I tend to believe Virginia will go for the pubbies but this constant barrage of bogus polls does take its toll.

No, R_I_V, these polls are supposed to have us cowering in the corner babbling woe is us, Romney's a loser.  Nice try, WaPo; your man's going down.

I think Virginia may well be Romney's toughest hurdle, for several reasons:

1. The government workers within an hour of DC are fat and happy, and so are the small businesses that cater to them.  This fact was driven home to me when I went to Fairfax to pick up a car from a car dealer a few weeks ago.  It was a BMW dealership.  The salesperson told me that in his estimation about 70 percent of his customers and colleagues would be voting for Obama.  And this guy is no liberal.
2. A lot of the registered Republicans in VA are government workers.
3. The Dem turnout will be higher there than in other places by virtue of the high number of government workers.

It basically comes down to beltway turnout versus the rest of the state, but most of the the growth in the state has been government growth, so it's problematic.  I think it will actually be a tougher nut for Romney to crack than Ohio.  Not impossible -- it's still a southern state with southern roots -- but way tougher than North Carolina and I think tougher than Ohio.

NORVA is indeed THE problem. Somehow we will have to convince those people that their vote day is Nov 7th.

Government workers are NOT going to have a problem under Romney. Of course, they don't know that and I don't know how to convince them of that but it's one of the issues that Romney will have to make clear in the debates.
All these ads are fodder, I don't think anyone is listening.
The debates will be Romney's defining moment and will determine if he will win or lose the election.

If he makes it TOO clear anywhere but Virginia, it could cost him every other battleground state.
Yes. It's a fine line.

Your missing one key, and I mean hugely key point in your tally. The Regime is decimating US defense and VA is going to take the brunt of that focused slashing. You think those guys are happy with the Regime these days?

Possibly.  But DC/NOVA is still full of plenty of other non-defense civil servants, and some of the defense civil servants may be moved to other agencies.
