New Poll Has Romney Leading Virginia by Seven Points

Hot on the heels of a poll showing Mitt Romney leading by seven points in Florida, Breitbart is reporting a McLaughlin & Associates poll that shows that:

Mitt Romney has taken a commanding 7-point lead over President Barack Obama in another Virginia poll. 

According to a McLaughlin & Associates poll that had an R+.02 sample, Romney leads Obama in Virginia 51%-44%.

Among independents, Romney beats Obama by 11 points, 50%-39%. 

If these numbers hold for Romney, Romney could be free to expand the electoral map and more aggressively make plays for states like Michigan and Pennsylvania that were considered “reaches” just two weeks ago.
