HU poll shows Gillespie ahead of Northam in race for governor

Republican Ed Gillespie has an 8 percentage point lead over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, Hampton University's Center for Public Policy says.

The poll, conducted last week by the Virginia university, found that 41 percent of those surveyed would vote for Gillespie and 33 percent for Northam. Asked this question, only 3 percent said they didn't know or refused to answer. However, the gap between Northam and Gillespie was slightly smaller in CNU's latest poll.

Respondents said that economic and job growth as well as health care are the most pressing issues for the next governor.

Recent polling from other institutions continues to show Northam with a comfortable, yet shrinking, lead over Gillespie.

Improving transportation infrastructure such as bridges, tunnels, and road surfaces - 13%.

Gillespie faces Democrat Ralph Northam in the November 7 election.

Voters will head to the polls on November 7.

Former president George W. Bush, who spoke at two of his rallies in October, endorsed him too. In fact, 56-percent of those polled said they disapproved of the job he was doing as president as opposed to 39-percent who supported the president. It has a margin of error of +/- 4.2%.

The election takes place in the commonwealth of Virginia on November 7th.
