Democrat Northam Removes Running Mate from Ads to Appease Virginia Union Supporters

Latest poll shows tight race for Virginia governor's race Northam clings to lead in Virginia governor's race

A pair of polls released Tuesday continue to show Democratic candidate Ralph Northam leading Republican Ed Gillespie in next month's Virginia governor's race.

Both Gillespie and Northam have high profile supporters making visits on their behalf this week.

Specifically, Fairfax refuses to support the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a planned natural-gas line that would span 600 miles from West Virginia to North Carolina, crossing through much of Virginia on its way.

Rachel Bitecofer, assistant director of the Wason Center, said the governor's race is close enough for either candidate to prevail. "This year, it looks like Donald Trump's unpopularity is nudging them in that direction again".

The poll shows 48 percent of likely voters support Gillespie, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, and 47 percent support Northam, the commonwealth's current lieutenant governor. "Clearly, a quarter of likely voters didn't get the message".

"One number says it all".

Northam had referred to Mr. Trump as a "narcissistic maniac", and was asked if he felt the president was fit for the office.

In northern Virginia, however, more than half (54 percent) say Mr. Trump is a factor in their vote.

A majority of voters say things in Virginia are moving in the right direction (52% vs. 29%).

Election Day is November 7, 2017.

An August NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found 51 percent of Americans said they have a favorable opinion of Obama, while 35 percent had a negative opinion.
