Home Poll: Romney, Allen lead in Virginia races

Poll: Romney, Allen lead in Virginia races


A poll from Gravis Marketing and Capitol Correspondent released on Tuesday gives Republican Mitt Romney a five-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama in the Virginia presidential race, and also gives GOP Senate candidate George Allen a five-point lead over Democrat Tim Kaine.

The poll differs significantly from recent polling in both races that had consistently given Obama a small lead over Romney for president and had the Kaine-Allen race a virtual deadlock.

Gravis Marketing, in a press release on its poll, reported that it had polled Virginia in August and had measured a 44 percent-to-40 percent lead for Obama in the presidential race. Its Sept. 8-9 survey had the race at 49 percent for Romney and 44 percent for Obama.

The Gravis Marketing August poll in the Senate race had given Allen a three-point lead and now has Allen ahead 47.8 percent to 42.5 percent.
