The poll, released today, has the Democrat leading McCain by a 53 percent-to-44 percent margin. The last CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corp. poll in Virginia, taken two weeks ago, had McCain up by four points.

Another poll done in Virginia by Insider Advantage/Poll Position 2008 had the Obama lead at 51 percent to 45 percent for McCain. That poll was released on Tuesday.

A quick scan of the national polls has Obama up 49 percent to 42 percent in a Pew Research Center survey, 51 percent to 45 percent in the Rasmussen Reports daily track and 48 percent to 44 percent in the Gallup daily track.
