Race And Voter Turn Out In VA

From Newser:
Polls not only have McDonnell up 11 points or so, they show that Republicans are more likely to turn out despite being outnumbered among registered voters. In other words, Virginia Republicans are fired up, and not about to let a liberal get elected.
This was the focus of Barack Obama's last-ditch efforts to get out the black vote in Virginia and save Deeds. But if you can't get out voters unless your candidate is black, what does that say about the actual ideology they're turning out to support?
