RICHMOND, Virginia (AP)— A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Democrat Terry McAuliffe leading Republican Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor's race.
Forty-seven percent of the poll's 1,180 likely voters surveyed Oct. 2-8 favored McAuliffe. Thirty-nine percent supported Cuccinelli and 8 percent supported Libertarian Robert Sarvis. The poll's margin of sampling error was plus-or-minus 2.9 percentage points.
The poll showed McAuliffe with a wide margin among women voters, who favored him to Cuccinelli 54 percent to 34 percent with 7 percent for Sarvis.
By nearly a 3-to-1 ratio, respondents opposed shutting down the federal government to block the federal health care law. Yet 58 percent said they were not personally inconvenienced by the shutdown.
