ROANOKE, Va. – If the election were held today, Joe Biden would claim Virginia’s 13 electoral college votes.
That’s according to a Roanoke College poll published Wednesday, which states the former vice president holds a 14-point lead over President Donald Trump among likely voters in Virginia.
Among those polled, only 5% said they were undecided about their candidate.
While Biden leads in Virginia as a whole, when taking a regional look at the state, not everyone is backing the Biden/Harris ticket.

|Shenandoah Valley||63%||22%||+41% Trump|
|Northern Virginia||26%||67%||+41% Biden|
Looking back to 2016, Hillary Clinton gathered 5.3% more of the vote than Trump to win the state.
