Virginia: Obama 49%, Romney 46% (Newsmax/Zogby)

Three Point Lead for Kaine Over Allen, 47%-44%

A brand new NewsmaxZogby Poll shows President Barack Obama holding an ever-so-slight lead over GOP challenger Mitt Romney 49% to 46% among Virginia likely voters. The online poll of 827 likely voters was conducted Sunday (October 21) through Tuesday (October 23) and has a margin-of-sampling error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.

1. I bet it must burn newsmax to have to publish this poll.

8. Not really. Most state polling have sample sizes below 1,000.

PPP and Rasmussen both sometimes have only 500 people polled.

4. The last time around..

BO won by 6 % points. We will carry Va and Kaine will win the Senate seat, but there is work to be done to ensure that.

5. It would be unfortunate if Obama lost Virginia

Not because it would necessarily change the outcome of the election since Obama can still win without it, but because it would mean Romney got away with his lies.

Romney and the Governor of VA are going around saying Obama is anti-military etc. and meanwhile it is Romney who avoided serving in the military, as did his 5 sons.

It is Romney who argued in FAVOR of sending other men to Vietnam while not being willing to do so himself. I'm glad there are some Veterans for Obama groups out there who are offended by this, but I'd like to see Sen. Jim Webb and others make sure more people know about what a hypocrite Romney is.
