Deeds Getting Stronger --- McDonnell Declining

Dramatic shifts among independent female voters and Northern Virginians over the past month have propelled Democrat R. Creigh Deeds to within four points of Republican Robert F. McDonnell in the race for Virginia governor, according to a new Washington Post poll.
The change among likely voters -- down from a 15-point margin in mid-August -- coincides with the publication and ensuing controversy surrounding McDonnell's graduate school thesis, in which he writes of his opposition to working women, feminists and gay people.

In the new poll, McDonnell edges Deeds by 51 to 47 percent among voters who say they are certain to vote in November, with the poll offering both candidates reasons to be optimistic as people begin to make up their minds six weeks before Election Day.

"I didn't write when I was 34 years old that working women are a detriment to the family. I didn't write when I was 34 years old that Roe v. Wade ought to be overturned. I didn't write when I was 34 years old that contraception decisions ought to be subjected to the government."

ToniD you can believe Deeds doesn't think your kinda people deserve the same rights as everyone else cause Deeds said so himself only 10 years ago.

Shari said his thesis wasn't important to this election but Bob McDonnell is ?

See? Truth isn't in any of you.

You make references to "people like me" Why don't you tell me what you're talking about?

Then you attribute statements to Shari that she never wrote in order to avoid answering a pretty simple and direct question.

You like to call yourself men. What a joke.

I'll ask anon again: "What thesis won't Deeds release? I can't find anything about it."
