Election Day is just around the corner, and one poll from a Virginia university shows an advantage for one of the presidential candidates.
A CNU poll released on Wednesday shows that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden enters the final week of voting with a 12-point lead over President Donald Trump among likely Virginia voters. Biden is up 53%-41% against Trump.
For Virginia’s Senate race, Democrat Mark Warner holds a 20-point lead over Republican Daniel Gade, 57%-37%, according to the poll.
With less than a week until Election Day, the poll said that voters show bipartisan approval (54%-24%) for Constitutional Amendment 1, which plans to establish a redistricting commission to draw state and congressional district lines.
This poll also shows that Biden’s “advantage in Virginia is built on Democrats' usual coalition of Black voters (90%-9%), women (60%-38%), and college-educated voters (60-35%), plus a lead among older voters (54%-42%) and an even split among men (46%-45%).”
When it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic, polls say that Virginia voters say that it’s the most important issue for the next elected president to address (29%). The next issues of importance are the economy (21%) and then health care (13%).
