The poll found Romney leading Obama 50%-48% among likely voters.
The GOP presidential candidate leads Obama by 21 points (58%-37%) among Virginia’s unaffiliated – or independent – voters and has the support of 90% of the state’s Republicans.
He leads Obama on the economy by six points and on national security and energy policy by two points. Only 19% of voters in Virginia think the economy is „good or excellent,” and 42% describe the economy as poor.
Romney also has a better favorable/unfavorable rating (50/47) than Obama (50/49).
Rasmussen surveyed 750 likely voters in Virginia on November 4, and the poll’s margin of error is +/- four percentage points.
