Why Virginia Matters

Mark Murray: "The reason why Virginia matters is that, politically, no other state better reflects the center of American politics than the Old Dominion."

"In the last two presidential contests, the state's popular vote (Obama 53%-46% in '08; Obama 51%-47% in '12) exactly matched the national popular vote... And Virginia, demographically, looks like the country at large -- whites near 70% of the population, African Americans in the double digits, Latinos at 8%, Asian Americans at 6%. It also has a fairly even mixture of urban, suburban, and rural areas."
