New Poll Shows McCain Leading in Va.

Arizona Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) holds a narrow lead over Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill) in Virginia, according to a new poll by Mason-Dixon Research Inc. for several state newspapers, including the Richmond Times Dispatch.

The poll has McCain getting 48 percent of the vote compared to Obama's 45 percent. But McCain's lead is within the 4 point margin of error. According to the Times Dispatch, McCain leads among men, whites and military voters. MCain also leads in rural areas and in Richmond.

The two candidates are running even in the Hampton Roads but Obama has a big lead in Northern Virginia. He is also ahead among blacks, younger voters -- those 18 to 34 -- as well as women, according to the Times Dispatch.

On Wednesday, CNN/Time published a poll that showed Obama ahead of McCain, 53 to 44 percent, in Virginia. A Washington Post published last Monday showed Obama with a 3 point lead over McCain.

Polls dont mean anything. Obama's momentum is making Missouri, Florida, and Ohio a reality for him.

The owner of Florida and Ohio will take the election.

You can have Nevada.
