Obama Leads by 7 in Virginia

Tim Craig

Democrat Barack Obama holds a 7-point lead over Republican John McCain in Virginia, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

In the survey conducted Wednesday through Sunday, Obama draws 49 percent among likely voters compared to McCain's 42 percent. By wide margins, Virginia voters trust Obama to address the economy, financial crisis and health care. The two candidates draw even on the question of who can best handle national security issues.

The Associated Press polled in Virginia along with seven other battleground states. Obama holds double-digit leads in Nevada, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. Obama is up by at least 5 percentagage points in Colorado, Ohio and Virginia. He holds a two point advantage in North Carolina and Florida, according to the Associated Press.
