McAuliffe leads, Deeds gains in new poll
With 19 days until the June 9 primary to decide the Democratic nominee for governor, former Democratic National Committee chair Terry McAuliffe remains the frontrunner, but the race is getting a little tighter. According to a new poll from SurveyUSA, 37 percent of likely primary voters support McAuliffe, but 26 percent say they favor State Senator Creigh Deeds. Compared with a poll taken three weeks ago, McAuliffe's lead over Deeds has shrunk from 16 points to 11 points, with 14 percent of voters in the newest poll undecided. Former delegate Brian Moran saw no change in his level of support, maintaining at 22 percent.
