Democrat Terry McAuliffe leads Republican Ken Cuccinelli 46 percent to 39 percent among likely Virginia voters while 10 percent back third-party candidate Robert Sarvis, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, less than two weeks before the election.
Though 47 percent of the voters say the federal government shutdown hurt the defense-heavy state “a great deal,” the poll’s analysis indicates that it did not appear to affect the governor’s race.
An Oct. 10 survey showed McAuliffe up by 8 percentage points and Sarvis, the Libertarian nominee, with 8 percent.
McAuliffe leads 92 percent to 3 percent among Democrats, with 2 percent for Sarvis, while Cuccinelli leads 81 percent to 6 percent among Republicans, with 11 percent for Sarvis.
Independent voters split 39-39 percent, with 14 percent for Sarvis.
