A new poll indicates Democrat Terry McAuliffe maintains his advantage over Republican Ken Cuccinelli, a day before the two candidates square off on Election Day in Virginia’s gubernatorial race.
According to the Quinnipiac University survey, McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli among likely voters, 46%-40%. Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis has support among 8% of likely voters.
The margin between McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, and Cucinelli, the commonwealth’s Attorney General, remains similar to a poll released on Friday that showed McAuliffe with a seven percentage point advantage.
Other surveys in recent weeks have consistently shown McAuliffe slightly ahead of his Republican opponent.
The latest poll was conducted from October 29 through November 3, a window of time that included high profile campaign stops by former President Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama for McAuliffe. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has also hit the trail for McAuliffe, and Vice President Joe Biden attends an event for the Democrat on Monday.
