Constitution Party-Virginia’s Virgil Goode: Could this Man Cost Mitt Romney the Presidency?

Goode is running for president on the Constitution Party ticket, and his candidacy has Republicans sweating: Goode is pulling fully 9% of Virginia’s vote, according to a mid-July Public Policy Polling survey, leaving Obama ahead of Romney 49% to 35%. In a tight election where Virginia’s 13 electoral college votes could make or break the Romney’s candidacy, even 2% for Goode could pull enough Republicans away to hand the historically red state to Obama in November.

Goode could easily maintain at least a few percentage points in Virginia through the fall. He remains a popular local figure who served in the Virginia State Senate for 24 years and then then represented VA’s 5th district in the U.S. House until 2009. His platform is simple—he can recite it under 15 seconds. “One: balance the budget now, not later. Two: Get Americans jobs by ending illegal immigration and making legal immigration harder. Lastly: Impose term limits.”

If you consider Virgil Goode a liberty candidate, than so be it.

This is obviously a play on the Gary Johnson defamation... Laughable.

No. I didn't intend that.

Liberty candidate or whatever. I didn't think it mattered what category I stuck it under. Do people really read the category titles? I don't. The only one that alerts me is the one that says "Art" because it is usually poetry. I hate poetry and try to avoid it as much as possible.

The more the merrier

I don't give a rat's hind quarters about the misnamed Constitution Party, but there you are.

With him pulling 9% now & GJ about the same...That takes lots of

votes away from Romney. I don't care if it is Roseanne, as long as Romney loses.

The problem

With Good is that he has supported wars in the past and the UnPatriotic Act.

To his credit, he did oppose the bailouts.

How dare you!?

This is not a Virgil Goode forum. (sarc)
Thanks for the post and the link.
