Why say JUNK?

Looks obvious really, a large chunk of Clinton supporters refused to answer, hence a crashing drop.

As for what it means on election day, I'd hazard a guess that they still vote for her (or have already voted for her but don't want to say)

VA has become a really fickle state in recent years. Clinton will probably win it, but it will be closer than most expect.

Clinton obviously is the heavy favorite here, but keep in mind that what's been making VA blue the past 8 years is high black turnout (and to a lesser extent, an increase in government workers near D.C.)

Clinton's big problem this cycle is that black turnout has been way down since 2012. Minorities may hate Trump, but they are not excited for Hillary either. She just can't turn them out the way Obama did.

I've been noticing lower black turnout and higher white turnout in key swing states during early voting (which I don't think many polls are taking into account) and have been searching for info on VA EV numbers ever since. But after scouring the internet, I've come up short.

VA has been on my dark horse list (along with MI) for a while now. If it is in play (big IF), then this opens up a whole can of worms for Clinton. Right now Trump's path to victory is 4 Aces - IA, OH, FL, and a blue leaning state or a NV+NH combo. I think he has three of the four. But the last one will be the toughest.

evidence over the country as a whole is that black people are actually early voting at higher numbers in 2016 compared to 2012. There is just a surge in white and hispanic early voting that means the % of Black early voters is down, but therefore by contrast the election day % will be up.

Stop posing junk.
It's a legitimate poll. A terrible pollster. But a legitimate poll nonetheless. They were just as bad when they had Clinton up by 12 as they are with this result.

That is factually false.

In many states blacks are down 10-15% from their numbers in 2012.

It is an outlier, the other did not look to be one.  Stop trying to get people.  Your pretty bad at it.

Not really. Quinnipiac is an A-, but did terribly during the primaries. Gravis is a B- for god knows why. SurveyUSA has had multiple bad cycles yet maintains its A. Thats just to name a few.

I would bet my organs and 500,000 dollars that Virginia will not vote for Trump. As somebody who lives in Northern Virginia.

Southwest Virginia here. Lots of enthusiasm here for Trump, and the rest of the state only has to increase turnout by 5% to beat NoVA.

Well if the Reps want to win the state, they also have got to be sure the rest of dem Reps are on board. It almost went to Roobs during the Primary.

This poll is biased b/c of Trump's great relationship with the blacks.
