VCU Poll: McCain Leads in Virginia

May 20, 2008

A poll by Virginia Commonwealth University shows that John McCain would beat either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the presidential race in Virginia.

According to the statewide poll, if the election were held today, McCain would get support from 44 percent of registered voters compared to 36 percent for Obama.

If McCain were to face Clinton in November, he would win 47 percent to 38 percent.

Fifteen percent were undecided when asked about a McCain-Obama
matchup, and 11 percent were undecided in a McCain-Clinton contest.

The results are based on telephone surveys of 862 registered
Virginia voters from May 12 through May 18 by The Commonwealth
Poll, conducted by VCU and released Tuesday. In each case, they
were outside the margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage
points.
