Interesting that we have an east-west split roughly along the I-95 corridor.

Also looks like Northam has successfully threaded his needle on the contentious, hot-button issues of immigration, abortion, and the Confederacy:

Quote
More broadly, a 59 percent majority of registered voters say illegal immigration is “not a problem” in their part of Virginia, a flip from 2007 when 53 percent of voters said it was a problem.

Gillespie’s position on abortion — he wants the procedure banned with certain exceptions — appears to be a liability as well. A 55 percent majority opposes a ban on all abortions except in cases of incest, rape or to save a pregnant woman’s life, while 37 percent support it. Among the majority who oppose this restriction, about seven in 10 likely voters support Northam.

On another contentious issue, the Post-Schar School poll finds a 57 percent majority of registered voters think Confederate monuments should be kept on government property while 31 percent want them removed. After a violent clash in August led by white supremacists around a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Northam called for the statues’ removal. He later said the decision should be left to localities. Gillespie has said the statues should remain but historical context should be added.

It likely won't be this lopsided, but I still think Northam wins by about 5.

I've been pointing out for weeks how Northam has potential to overperform typical Dems in Eastern Virginia (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Eastern Shore) due to it being his geographic base. Wonder if this poll confirms that?

I think he'll pick up some of those Tidewater counties Obama was able to win (Caroline, Essex, Westmoreland), although it'll be less reliant on black turnout in this case. The map will also look very nice if Northam pulls in both Eastern Shore counties. He's certainly the only candidate who can pull that off.

To be fair, (though I remain skeptical of anything more than a 2 point margin) the primary for Northam was supposed to be close too against Perriello....but pretty much everything east of I-95 went bigly for Northam.

Could happen again.

Just saw a tweet from the person in charge of the poll. They said that they really pushed learners into making a decision and stressed that 25% could change their minds.

Ya I mean basically this confirms that about 40% or a little under support Gillespie, low-40s support Northam, and the remaining undecided voters are Democratic-leaning.

Definitely a great sign for Northam that he is converting those leaning voters when they're pushed to give a preference, however. I wish more polls pushed people to make a decision.

I doubt it'll be +13 but I suspect the massive fiancial edge Northam gained in August resulted in this via ad buys in September. Will be interesting to see September fundraising totals - if Nottham takes it 2 - 1 again Gillespie may well just get buried well before Election Day.

Interesting that even in this poll 57 percent support keeping Confederate monuments. I wonder if Gillespie will tack right on this issue in the hope of appealing to Stewart voters who clearly don't care about his candidacy.

Anything on the LG race? I expect Fairfax to win, but I’m still wary of the Bradley Effect.

Suspect Northam probably finishes with mid-to-high single digits

They also pretend that the 2016 polling for VA does not exist because they it does not support their narrative.
