At the time of the interview, the Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe (pictured, above) was losing to Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli by a few percentage points. Ochnser, Pratt & Corbin discussed the possibility of the remaining precincts to changing the tide to flip the race over to McAuliffe.
Demographics and the number of government employed voters were analyzed for the possible election results.
