1. Unless the two infrastructure bills are passed before November 2, I think McAuliffe will

face headwinds because of it

2. RCP is now fascist

RCP isn't right leaning neutral they are now a propaganda outlet. They were an invaluable resource for years.

Edit, I got confused about those candidates. I'm glad McAuliffe has a similar lead as Northam did. And RCP is more organized than 538, I do like skimming the center and far right talking points on occasion over there to be informed. But their shift away from objectivism concerns me if they switch their statistics team.

3. I agree

RCP has become a conservative outlet…I remember during the last election they would wait to put up a favorable Biden poll or not put it up at all, but were quick to put up a poll favorable to trump no matter how partisan the poll was….just to keep the average close
