Chesterbrook Precinct: Late support for Deeds?
Republicans are said to vote early, as Democrats vote late. Afternoon turnout here at the Chesterbrook precinct in McLean has stayed fairly low since about noon. But many who have come say they're backing Democrat Creigh Deeds.
In fact, we just talked with nine Democrats in a row who backed Creigh Deeds. Statistically, especially given the polls, the chances of this are quite small. But, as statisticians also would say, the group that turns out from 4:30 to 5 p.m. self-selects.
"I think it's going to be very close in the end," said David Hunt, a 55-year-old Democrat who backed Deeds.
"It's a real late push here," said Louise Klein Hodin, 70, who still thinks Deeds might win. "He came out of nowhere, and he was running against some very prominent Democrats and then he fell asleep at the wheel."
"I was not tremendously impressed with Deeds, but there's high negatives for McDonnell," said Democrat William Weisberg, 47, who stuck with his party's pick.
