Election 2012

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.
