Dem Northam leads GOP’s Gillespie by 17 in Virginia gov race

Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) leads Republican nominee Ed Gillespie by 17 points in the Virginia governor’s race, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

Northam received 53 percent among likely voters in Virginia, while Gillespie polled at 36 percent.

The Quinnipiac polls have had better results for Northam than other surveys. According to RealClearPolitics, Northam leads Gillespie by just 3.3 points in an average of several polls.

The results of the most recent Quinnipiac poll is up from the 14-point leadNortham held in one of the university’s polls earlier this month.

“In 2014, Republican Ed Gillespie came oh-so-close to upsetting Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, at least in part because 2014 was a Republican year and Gillespie benefited from the national pro-GOP mood. But with President Donald Trump‘s approval ratings in the dumpster in Virginia and in the nation, this year the shoe is on the other foot for Gillespie,” the assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, Peter Brown, said in a statement.
