President Obama has agreed to appear in Northern Virginia with Democratic gubernatorial nominee, Terry McAuliffe, on Sunday night, just two days before the highly anticipated election. By having the president address the people so close to Election Day, it could inspire the Democrats and ultimately create a better turn out.
On the other hand, it could also invigorate Republican Ken Cuccinelli’s supporters and motivate more of the Independents to vote against McAuliffe. Bringing Obama out is definitely a risky decision that could hurt McAuliffe just as much as he’s hoping it helps him.
The Obamacare website has brought along so much drama in the past few weeks and has affected millions of people who are now having their insurance plans cancelled. With all of these false promises presented by Obama, it might not be necessarily smart for McAuliffe to be making such a public appearance with him.
An article on Breitbart said that, “Obama is posting some of the worst approval ratings of his Presidency.” Now people might get out and vote strictly on their opinions of them teaming up together and it could change the outcome. McAuliffe has been up in every poll for almost the past two months and if people change their votes, his rating could rapidly drop and he might not end up on top like he’s anticipating.
Cuccinelli is now in the position where he can rack up the votes of the people who have been affected by losing their insurance and have negative feelings towards Obama. McAuliffe has been strongly fighting for Medicaid expansion and has used Obamacare as the stepping-stone. With all of the problems surrounding the law now, people might not be too supportive of the idea.
With only four days until the election, it seems like things are just continuing to heat up. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens after the weekend.
