Is Ken Cuccinelli closing in on Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race? The latest poll from Emerson College shows McAuliffe, the Democrat, with 42 percent support and Cuccinelli, the Republican, with 40 percent. Libertarian Robert Sarvis has 13 percent in the poll of 874 likely voters.
The two-point lead for McAuliffe is the smallest he's had in any poll since September.

here is a prime example of why splitting off from the Republican party will ensure permanent democratic victory.
Sarvis, are you reading this? Do the right thing. Drop out!!!
Yes that is true unless of course we get states to switch to a runoff style elections which I believe we should do. Run offs guarantee that third parties aren’t spoilers while also getting rid of the stigma of being a spoiler so they might even have a real chance of getting elected.
They’ll steal it. Unopposed.
Sarvis is a liberal at heart. He claims he doesn’t believe in the Austrian school/Milton Friedman school of economics instead he believes in “mainstream” economics which is Keynesian economics. He ran previously as a liberal GOP. He’s all in on abortion and believes being gay is like being black. Do I need to say more.
Yep, I think Sarvis is a fraud Libertarian working to undermine Cuccinelli with help from George Soros. Why didn’t Mellon Scaife help the Green Party run someone to the left of McAuful?
Idea: Contact John or Robert himself and ask them politely to GET OUT OF THE RACE.
If Sarvis throws his support behind Cooch, the latter wins on Tuesday. 15 percent of the vote now expected to go to the former,
My motto is not “there is nothing to do but wait”..but rather “what can we do to help?”
God Bless Mark Levin,,,the only fearless Conservative talk show host who isn’t intimidated by what anyone else thinks of his taking principled stands on behalf of our liberties., thus, he has openly endorsed Ken day after day on his radio show.

But, sounds like the “right thing” for Sarvis is to help McAwful, and thus stay in.
The faux libertarian will pull out if and when he determines that he is hurting McAwful more than Cuccinelli.
Yup. The split will go Cuccinelli's way.
Maybe Sarvis doesn't like that possibility.
Sarvis has zero chance of winning but he can be a winning player by throwing his support to Cuccinelli.
It would be a black swan moment that would freak out the electioneers.
I would be in every issue of “politics and elections”.
Funny how these “Libertarians” show up when a conservative is running but not when a RINO is the candidate.
Several southern states do have runoffs for all but presidential elections. It's also the only way we can ever ensure that the voter's choice wins in presidential primaries.
Sarvis is a true libertarian, he is strong on being pro-abortion, pro-drugs, pro-gay, etc. he is just weak on some of the economic parts of the libertarian agenda.
They won’t listen to anyone from outside their state.
perhaps sarvis is being PAID to stay in the race.
a paid vote splitter for the stupid people.
Once again, the Libertarian Party is the BFF of the progressive Democrats.
Totally agree and I’d like to see it applied from primaries on up to president. The current system doesn’t serve anyone but to divide republicans against republicans and citizen against citizen who would otherwise find more in common provided they felt they had their say by voting for the candidate they believe in and then if losing voting for the one that is closest to the one they supported.
So scary. The Democrats really want Virginia. Libertarians will peel off all the young voters who want to legalize drugs.
