McAuliffe Lead Widens to Eight Points in VA Governor Race

Politico reports:

Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe has an 8-point lead in the Virginia governor's race, a new poll found, the latest evidence of his advantage with less than three weeks left until Election Day.

The NBC4/NBC News/Marist poll found McAuliffe winning 46 percent of likely voters, compared with 38 percent for GOP Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and 9 percent for libertarian Robert Sarvis. If the election were a two-way race between McAuliffe and Cuccinelli, McAuliffe's lead would increase to 9 points, 52 percent to 43 percent.

Compared to the last NBC/Marist poll - prior to the government shutdown - McAuliffe's lead is widening, from 5 to 8 points. No wonder that Cuccinelli is flailing, throwing anything and everything at the wall and hoping it sticks. ​
