Washington Post Dumps Deeds in Trashcan

Washington Post Gives up on Deeds

Just a week after the Deeds endorsement from the Washington Post, it has become clear that the Post has put its faith for Deeds in the trash can. As mention earlier, the Post has a history for backing the losers, and it seems that the Post has realized this all a bit too late. Nothing, not even Obama’s helping hand in Virginia, can boost up Deeds' points. With a week left the negativity coming out of the Deeds' campaign will only help, not hurt, McDonnell as he becomes closer to victory. With no excitement and certainly no positivity coming from the left, Deeds can now start to dig his grave, and forget about packing up his things for the Governors' mansion.

"The poll shows that Deeds has been unable to shift the dynamics of a race that in recent weeks appeared to be slipping away from him. Despite a concerted effort to reverse a widespread voter perception that his campaign has been largely negative, more than six in 10 polled see the Democrat as running a mainly negative effort. By contrast, most see McDonnell's campaign as a predominantly positive one."-Jon Cohen and Rosalind S. Helderman

"Deeds has also been unable to excite his supporters and close the dramatic gap in enthusiasm McDonnell has held from the start. About a quarter of Deeds voters say they are supporting him "not too" enthusiastically or "not at all" enthusiastically. More than nine in 10 of those who back McDonnell are "very" enthusiastic or "fairly" enthusiastic about the Republican." -Jon Cohen and Rosalind S. Helderman
