Shumlin Still Winning The Hard Way

by Philip Baruth

Good news for the Governor: a new Public Policy Polling result finds Shumlin beating Dubie (the strongest GOP candidate) in a re-match by a relatively hefty margin, 48%-40% — “relatively” because last time out, you’d have had a hard time sliding a playing card between the two candidates on Election Day. And make no mistake: Shumlin has created that margin through sheer sweat equity, showing up for every single event in every single County every single day of every single week. It’s work ethic, nothing more, nothing less — not only on the Governor’s part, but on the part of his staff. Kudos, people. And don’t stop moving.
