Quinnipiac Poll: Northam has 14% edge over Gillespie

Posted October 19, 2017

Northam's lead has narrowed from last week, where the CNU poll showed him leading, 49 to 42 percent.

In the Quinnipiac poll, Northam has strong support from independent voters with 53 percent of the support, compared to 39 percent for Gillespie.

"This has never been more than a five point race in Monmouth's polling, and that means either candidate has a very real shot at winning this thing".

Local Virginia paper the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Northam chose to remove Fairfax from some of his campaign literature at the request of the Laborers' International Union of North America, whose spokesman claimed the lieutenant-governor candidate "wasn't supporting [unions] on the issues".

According to a third poll, Gillespie may be doing just that.

"One number says it all".

"As the northern and western parts of Virginia revert to their partisan norms, the battle for swing voters will occur right down the I-95 corridor", added Murray.

Its quota under the deal is 3.797m barrels a day, but during the third quarter, it has pumped an average of 3.828m b/d. During the previous round of sanctions against Iran , some 1 million bpd of oil was cut from global markets.

The deceased were identified as Maladri, 25, Pavan Kalyan, 19, Prasad, 18, Ravichandran, 46, and Kalavathi, 68, the official said. In the same area, an illegally constructed multi-storey building was demolished after it tilted to one side in August.

Only four percent remain undecided.

The Northam campaign told the Washington Examiner that there was no malice behind the adjustment of the ad, calling it "fairly innocuous". Democrats are hoping anti-Trump sentiment will allow them to sweep all three statewide races and make serious gains in the Republican-controlled state House.

"I believe our president is a risky man, I think he lacks empathy", said Northam.

Meanwhile, when pressed to respond to a question of whether he'd support impeaching Mr. Trump, Gillespie didn't directly answer, saying instead that the state is in need of a "governor who can work with the president, vice president and administration".

"You can be rest assured, voters will know who Justin Fairfax is, what he stands for, and why he is the best choice for Lt. Governor in November", said Turner.

It's worth considering for a moment, too, how Northam's campaign and the mainstream media would've reacted had it been Republican candidate Ed Gillespie who erased a black running mate from certain campaign ads.
