Now is Not the Time for Complancency

Poll after poll is showing all three of the VSSA endorsed candidates for statewide office running well ahead of their opponents. Last night the Washington Post released results of their latest poll showing Bob McDonnell ahead of Creigh Deeds by 11 points. Survey USA has McDonnell by 17 with Independents breaking 2-1 for the leader.

The SurveyUSA poll dated Oct. 27 shows McDonnell with a 17-point lead over Democrat Creigh Deeds, 58-41.

Republican Bill Bolling is beating Democrat Jody Wagner by 14 points, 56-42, in the race for lieutenant governor. In the attorney general race, Republican Ken Cuccinelli leads Democrat Steve Shannon by 16 points, 57-41.

But this does not mean we can relax in the final week of the campaign. It is more important than ever that gun owners and sportsmen make sure they get their friends, family and fellow gun club/hunt club members to the polls on election day.

With Saturday being the first day of Muzzleloader Season for deer, if you plan to be in the woods next week, you can cast your vote absentee before election day. Because today is the last day to request an absentee ballot by mail, you should plan to vote in person absentee.

And between now and Tuesday there are opportunities to attend a rally, help out at phone banks and go door to door in targeted neighborhoods. You can find the nearest campaign office here.

Don't let the good polling numbers give a false sense of security. The only poll that counts is the one taken on election day and the only way we will win is if we all show up at the polls and vote our freedom and our sport.
