New Poll: McAuliffe Ahead of Cuccinelli by 12 points

Oct. 29, 2013

A new poll from the Washington Post shows a widening gap between the candidates for governor.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe now has a 12-point lead among likely voters over Republican Ken Cuccinelli.

According to the poll, 51 percent favored McAuliffe to Cuccinelli's 39 percent.

Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, who has achieved favor among voters who say they don't like either of the major party candidates, had 8 percent.

The outcome of Virginia's gubernatorial election is being viewed as a possible indication of midterm congressional elections in 2014.

Both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are planning to campaign with McAuliffe in the coming days.

Obama plans to campaign Sunday in northern Virginia, while Biden will kick off a volunteer canvassing kick-off on the election's eve Monday in Annandale.
