VA POLL: Obama 46, McCain 44
A new poll from Virginia suggests that Barack Obama is holding on to a narrow lead in this unlikely swing state, which Obama is making a major play for despite the fact that it hasn't voted Dem since 1964.

The new numbers from Public Policy Polling (D): Obama 46%, McCain 44%, within the 2.7% margin of error, and consistent with other recent polls showing a close race.

The poll has McCain winning white voters by a 53%-36% margin, much narrower than George W. Bush's 68%-32% margin in 2004. Curiously, the poll also has Obama ahead 77%-16% among black voters, a margin that will likely grow by the time Election Day rolls around.
