Post-conventions, McCain and Obama still tied in Virginia
In a poll conducted just two days after the conclusion of the Republican National Convention, Rasmussen Reports concludes that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) are still tied in the race for Virginia's 13 electoral votes. Of the 500 likely voters surveyed, 49 percent said they would vote for McCain, 47 percent for Obama, with a 4.5 percent margin of error. Both campaigns are betting hard on winning the Commonwealth come November, with Obama making stops in Lebanon near Bristol and Norfolk today, and McCain making a stop with VP candidate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in Fairfax tomorrow.
