New Poll Shows McCain Leads Obama in Va
Republican John McCain has a slight edge over Democrat Barack Obama in Virginia, according to a new CNN/Time poll.
Registered voters preferred McCain over Obama by 50 percent to 46 percent.
The telephone survey of 920 registered voters was conducted Friday through Tuesday and released today. It has a sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
No Democratic presidential candidate has carried Virginia since 1964, but an influx of voters and a stronger get-out-the-vote effort have helped Democrats win the past two gubernatorial elections, a high-profile Senate race in 2006 and the state Senate last year.
Opinion Research Corp. conducted the poll for CNN and Time in four battleground states, including Virginia, Missouri, Michigan and New Hampshire.
