Virginia Primary Prediction: The Winner!

It was a stunner last night -- state Sen. Creigh Deeds crushed the competition in the Democratic primary for governor, winning a stunning 50 percent of the vote in a three-way field.

Deeds' wide margin was unexpected and so most Fixistas missed the mark with their predicted order of finish.

First, the final results with all but one precinct reporting:

Creigh Deeds 158,833 49.8%
Terry McAuliffe 84,470 26.5%
Brian Moran 75,823 23.8%

The winner.....drum roll please: "Milfordone".

His/her prediction:

Deeds 48%
Terry 28%
Moran 24%

If you are "Milfordone" send an email to me at chris DOT cillizza AT washingtonpost DOT com with your home address and your preferred size. You are the proud owner of an official Fix t-shirt.

Special thanks to Post digital intern Emily Canal for sorting through the predictions.

Deeds was simply the right candidate for VA, which is why he will win the election easily.

King of Zouk -- The Washington Post actually endorsed Creigh Deeds and he used said endorsement in his final campaign ads. I don't think it would have endorsed a candidate who didn't have a reasonable chance to win. The win itself is not what the Post finds stunning. However, what was stunning was the resounding way in which he won. Most pundits believe that the winner would eke out 40% of the vote or less. As far as Deeds being the most conservative candidate, I would assume you are right. But Terry didn't have a legislative record to run on at all and his campaign objectives were somewhat unfocused. It is hard to tell how liberal or consertive he would have been.

I am always amused at how "stunned" the MSM is when events do not turn out as they wished. It was not unforeseen that the least liberal would win. It was an easy call. and everyone knew that Moron would lose being to the left of Mao. the only question was how much the McAwful graft would pay off.

Maybe if you MSM Obots got off your can and asked some questions and ventured into the world and did, you know, some journalism, you would not be surprised evry time something happens.
