Rand Paul's Fatal Conceit, Ron Paul's Pretense of Knowledge - an Austrian analysis of the Virginia gubernatorial debate
I've spent the last two weeks handing out literature door to door in Arlington, Virginia and the last few days going to events in southern, central, southwest and far west Virginia for the Sarvis for Governor campaign. I've been to Bedford, Chesterfield, Chesapeake, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Annandale, Norfolk, Hampton Roads, Harrisonburg, Reston, Winchester and Roanoke.
I've met a lot of Ron Paul supporters who are supporting Sarvis, who is polling at 8-13%. The polls are all very inconsistent, some showing the Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, at 51%, some at 45%, and the Republican, Ken Cucinelli, anywhere from 39% to 44%.
Sarvis gets the biggest chunk of his vote, over 40%, from people who say they would otherwise not vote, probably not unlike the kind of vote Ron Paul turned out for primaries and caucuses. In one poll, one third of his voters have Cuccinelli as a second choice and a fifth have McAuliffe as a second choice.
