New governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin, was only sworn into office into office a couple of weeks ago, but already we’re seeing polls like this one reported by The Hill:

There are some things worth noting about that poll which we’ll get to in a second, but you know if Ralph Northam was a Republican and Youngkin a Democrat, the angle would be about what an awful situation the new governor inherited.
Hasn’t he been in office less than 2 weeks…

Dude was sworn in two weeks ago

What a joke of a poll. He’s been in office 2 weeks. And it was a 44-47 within the margin of error.

Oh, and there are a couple other issues with that particular poll. The Hill mentions in the story that the poll commissioned by a left-leaning group and conducted by a left-leaning polling firm. Given that we’d say Youngkin’s numbers in it aren’t all that bad.
"A new poll from the left-leaning firm Public Policy Polling"
"The poll was conducted on behalf of the Coronavirus War Room, which is a project of the left-leaning Protect Our Care."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. They take a leftwing poll after just TEN DAYS in office? You've lost whatever shred of credibility you may have had by publishing this nonsense. https://t.co/dSSHf3SAO8

And that’s after just a few days. Imagine how bad it’ll get in the coming months and years.
