Washington Post Poll: McAuliffe 49, Youngkin 48

A new Washington Post poll, conducted October 20 to October 26, shows a dead heat in the Virginia gubernatorial race, with “49 percent of likely voters favoring Democrat Terry McAuliffe and 48 percent favoring Republican Glenn Youngkin.” The last time the same pollster surveyed the state in mid September, McAuliffe led Youngkin 50 percent to 47 percent among likely voters.

Of the five most recent polls included in the RealClearPolitics average before the Washington Post poll was released, four showed the race either tied or with McAuliffe ahead by one point. A Fox News poll released Thursday night showed Youngkin leading McAuliffe by eight points.
