Republican Ken Cuccinelli has pulled within 2 percentage points of Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia gubernatorial race with just four days to go, a new poll shows.
The Emerson College Polling Society says McAuliffe’s lead over Cuccinelli is now 42 percent to 40 percent, with Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis lagging taking 13 percent of the vote.
McAuliffe's lead is within the poll's margin of error, which Emerson says is 3.24 percent.
The society says the survey, conducted October 25-30 among 874 likely voters, shows that Cuccinelli is "gaining momentum" going into the final weekend before the election.
Early last month Emerson College had found that Cuccinelli was trailing McAuliffe by five points. The new poll comes just two days after Quinnipiac University stated that McAuliffe was ahead by four points.
