Virginia Poll Shows a Tight Race

Obama polling at forty-six percent, Romney at forty-four percent


(CNN) – On the day that President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney both campaigned in Virginia, a new poll indicates a very close contest between the two candidates for the state's 13 electoral votes.

According to Suffolk University/WWBT-Richmond survey released Thursday, Obama holds a 46%-44% edge over Romney among likely voters in Virginia, with seven percent undecided. The president's two point margin is within the poll's sampling error.

  1. The fact that the race is even close makes me want to crawl under a rock and puke. Not that I’m happy-happy-joy-joy over Romney but, I shudder at thethought of another 4 years of the Grinning Suit. The fact that over half the country is stupid and gullible enough to even consider re-electing Obama is not a good sign for the U.S. and its’ freedom loving citizens with common sense. I ready to give up completely or hope for a revolution.
