Entrance question: Are these two hundred thousand convicted felons included in Mrs. Clinton's thirteen-point lead over Donald Trump in the Virginia RCP poll average, or is she now even farther ahead than that?:
But many Republicans viewed McAuliffe’s action as a blatant favor to his longtime friend Hillary Clinton, for whom he and his wife recently raised $2 million at their McLean home.
“It is hard to describe how transparent the Governor’s motives are,” House Speaker William J.

And, of course, help elect Hillary Clinton the forty-fifth POTUS. Transparently, shamelessly, proudly. Such a pristinely honest corruption. Almost takes your breath away, doesn't it?

Given the fact that the other seven "battleground" States are led by Republican governors, they can't afford to take any chances, right? The Empress will be ever so appreciative....
