You'd have to ask the Republican voters of Virginia, but I wouldn't expect much of an answer.
Who's the Democratic nominee and what are the Dem's chances to pick up a seat? Or is this a carefully gerrymandered R district and the Rs are finally reaping what they've sown? I need to go read a little background here.

The Republican Party has a serious data problem. In 2012, Mitt Romney's internal polls were garbage. This year, Eric Cantor's internal polls showed him up by more than 30 points. Something is deeply wrong with the GOP's campaign infrastructure if the party's presidential nominee and the party's House majority leader can't rely on their pollsters.
