Wow! Virginia has not voted Democrat since 1964. A poll released yesterday by Public Policy Polling shows Obama ahead 46 - 44. This is more good news for Obama even though it is still early for meaningful polls. However, it appears Virginia will be one of the battleground states in the general election. has more here. has Virginia tied at 44 for Obama and McCain. The website currently shows the electoral vote count to be Obama - 292, McCain - 219 and Ties - 27. Virginia has 13 electoral votes. 270 electoral votes are needed to win.
