“The comparison to 2020 isn’t that good,” said Simon Vance, data consultant at McAuliffe. “What you are seeing is not a fall, but people reverting to behaviors that they have been doing for years.”

McAuliffe’s campaign highlighted the large number of mail-in ballots that have been requested but not yet returned – around 175,000. “We know these are our people and we are aggressively pursuing them,” Vance said.

To bolster his effort to exit the vote, McAuliffe is welcoming leading Democrats, including former President Barack Obama and President Biden, to campaign with him in the coming days. Georgian voting rights activist Stacey Abrams visited three churches in Norfolk, Virginia last Sunday and appeared with McAuliffe at a rally outside an early voting site. “We have to get everyone to vote,” McAuliffe said at the event.

The total number of anticipated in-person voters in Norfolk that day was 370. The Youngkin campaign called this an anemic number. “If Terry’s base was excited, that number should have been at least three times as high,” Davison said.

Vance disagreed. He said McAuliffe was on track to have the turnout needed to win.

“If we see 70, 65% of the total voters voting on election day, that’s where the real story will be told,” he said.
