Democrat Terry McAuliffe has a 46 percent to 31 percent lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli in the governor’s race. Democrat Ralph Northam has a 48 percent to 32 percent lead in the lieutenant governor race, and Democrat Mark Herring has a 46 percent to 35 percent lead over Republican Mark Obenshain in the attorney general race.
The margins are a bit farther out there in comparison with recent. The Washington Post, in a poll released on Monday, had McAuliffe up 12 in the governor’s race, and Rasmussen Reports, in a poll released this morning, had McAuliffe up seven.
Quinnipiac had the race at a four-point margin in a poll released this morning.
Another divergence is the margin for Herring in the attorney general race. The Post had the race at a three-point lead for Herring in its Monday release, in line with other recent polling that had the race basically a toss-up.
