Terry McAuliffe: Now That I Have Had a Chance to Peruse the Polling Numbers, I Have Discovered That Glenn Youngkin Is Taking My Clear Statement, "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach," Out-of-Context or Something

The Real Clear Politics average shows that McAuliffe's edge over Youngkin has fallen to 2.2 points. Trafalgar had the race tied, Emmerson had it McAuliffe +1, CBS had it McAuliffe +3. Obviously, those are inside the margin of error.

Of course, Fox News' hugely-Democrat-skewed poll has McAuliffe up +5. Again, Fox posts another outlier poll showing support for Democrats that even acknowledged left-partisan polls don't show.

Fox's polls have been consistently wrong and has had a consistent suppressive effect on Republican voting enthusiasm for ten f***ing years, but Fox keeps pretending their polls are real, and won't do a damn thing to straighten them out. It's almost as if they have an agenda.

Anyway, I don't think that Terry McAuliffe believes Fox's heavily-skewed polls, because, after repeating and confirming his statement that parents should not determine what their kids should be taught, he's suddenly claiming: I was taken out of context. Damn your lying ears!

And this was no slip of the tongue. In the days that followed that debate, McAuliffe was asked seven times about his statement -- and every single time, he confirmed he meant every word he said.

And now he's claiming he was taken "out of context," and that he knows "that good schools depend on involved parents." And that he's "always valued the concerns of parents."


Glenn Youngkin released this ad proving McAuliffe is lying about being taken "out-of-context" -- featuring In the Hall of the Mountain King as music.

Now that's Trumpy.

Stacey McCain writes:

You can tell by the TV ads that are running in the D.C. metro market that the Terry McAuliffe campaign is in deep trouble. The essence of the Democrat's pitch, in the off-year gubernatorial campaign, is that Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin is a puppet of Donald Trump.

Let's be clear about just who Glenn Youngkin actually is -- a Richmond native who attended Rice University on a basketball scholarship (he's 6-7), majored in engineering and management, and later got an MBA from Harvard. He spent 25 years with the Carlyle Group investment firm. If he is, or ever was, an extremist, nobody has discovered any evidence of this. Youngkin is Mister Clean, a calm and level-headed businessman without scandals in his past, and this is why the only way the McAuliffe campaign can try to attack him is by playing the "Orange Man Bad" card.

It should not be necessary for McAuliffe to attack Youngkin at all. A former governor, McAuliffe has near-100% name recognition in Virginia, while Youngkin is a little-known political newcomer. Virginia has been trending "blue" for the past 15 years; Hillary won Virginia 50%-44% in 2016, and Biden won the state by a 10-point margin last year.

Terry McAuliffe would have been cruising toward a November landslide, were it not for the disastrous failure of Joe Biden's presidency.
