Northam, Gillespie set to spar in 2nd debate

The latest stories and details on the 2017 Virginia general election and race for governor.

The governor's race between Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam and his Republican opponent Ed Gillespie has gotten tight, and voters' eyes will be on both contenders during Tuesday night's debate.

The poll by the University of Mary Washington found Mr. Northam with a 44 percent to 39 percent lead over Mr. Gillespie.

Quinnipiac pollsters surveyed 850 Virginia likely voters on landlines and cell phones between September 14 and September 15 and results have a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

Mary Washington compiled its data off of over 1,000 residence 18-year-old or older in Virginia, and interviews were done in English under the direction of Princeton Data Source from September 5 to 12, 2017.

What also hasn't been mentioned is whether Toyota's modern-day Supra will serve as GR's flagship offering, as has been rumored. GR Sport will be Toyota's entry-level performance trim, which surprisingly extends to models like the Prius and even minivans.

Despite combative primaries among Democrats and Republicans earlier this year, both of major party candidates have locked down most of the likely voters with partisan preferences. Among likely voters who call themselves independent, 39 percent backed Gillespie as compared to 30 percent for Northam. Gillespie is a longtime Republican operative and former chairman of the Republican National Committee who ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2014.

Mason Dixon surveyed 625 registered voters using similar techniques between September 10 and September 15, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. "Hesitation to support the eventual nominees in their respective parties has just about disappeared".

According to the poll, Northam gets a 47 - 31 percent favorability rating among Virginia likely voters.

Differences in other regions - Northwest Virginia (48 percent Gillespie, 40 percent Northam) and South Central Virginia (45 percent Northam, 40 percent Gillespie) - were within single digits, and the Tidewater region tied at 41 percent supporting each candidate.

Suffolk University conducted its questioning of 500 likely Virginia voters on September 13 through September 17. Among black voters, 65 percent supported removal, while 67 percent of whites were opposed.
