About this Poll Virginia sample has 529 registered voters, including 385 likely voters. Among all registered voters, the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 5 percentage points. Likely voters were determined by a screening process which included questions on intention to vote, certainty of vote, interest in the campaign, and past voting history. All interviews were conducted by telephone October 20 through 23, 2006. Telephone numbers were chosen from a list of all exchanges in the nation, and random digit dialing techniques allowed listed and unlisted numbers to be contacted. Multiple attempts were made to contact each number. Adults were weighted slightly to conform with their respective census figures for sex, race, age, and education.

I don't know who will win MO, TN, or VA but all these states are pure tossups and can go either way.preciction Map

Under 400 responders, with a margine of error being 5.5%? What terrible parameters for a poll. Heck, even a Zogby interactive poll does better than that.

Modu don't try and diminish this poll. Its the first one to show Webb leading! Allen still has a better chance at winning, but this shows that Webb continues to gain.

hahaha . . . it's the only one. I wouldn't put too much faith in this one. Get a few more polls out there showing Webb leading, and then I might believe it.
