New Virginia Poll: Biden 53%-Trump 39% (+14 pts.)

New Virginia polling by Virginia Commonwealth University’s Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs (Douglas Wilder was the nation's first Black governor) as follows. According to 538.com, this polling outfit scores a B/C grade and a mean-reverted bias of R+0.2 points.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Senator Mark Warner are ahead of their opponents by double-digit margins – Biden by 14 points (53%-39%) and Warner by 17 points (55%-38%). This compares to an 11-point lead (50%-39%) for Biden in July.

In the presidential race, women were more likely to prefer Biden over Trump by 22 percentage points (58%-36%) and men prefer Biden over Trump by a smaller margin of 5 points (47%-42%). This represents a shift for men, who were more likely to say they would vote for Trump in a poll released by the Wilder School in July.

Regionally, Biden has large leads in South Central Virginia (65%-22%), Northern Virginia (59%-32%) and Tidewater (56%-33%) and Trump has large leads over Biden in the West (63%-36%) and Northwest (58%-36%).

Independents are breaking toward Biden by 8 percentage points (46%-38%), with 14% remaining undecided.

In the U.S. Senate race, gender and region followed the same trend as the presidential race. And Warner enjoys a greater level of support from independents, with a 16-percentage point lead over his GOP challenger Gade (54%-38%).

Seven in 10 Virginians (70%) say the selection of Harris for vice president will have no impact on their decision to vote for Biden; 16% said it would make them more likely to vote for him, while 13% say it will make them less likely.

Virginians are split on whether mail-in votes will be accurately cast and counted. Half of respondents (50%) said they are very or somewhat confident that, across the country, mail-in votes for president will be accurately cast and counted, while 48% said they are not too or not at all confident. Democrats were more likely to trust the process with 68% being very or somewhat confident.

I don't think Virginia is too much of a concern compared to PA, WI, MI, MN, FL, AZ. They have a Dem trifecta already.

Wow!

That's not even close for a state that has only tilted Democratic in recent years.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
