A Monmouth University poll released Tuesday shows Gillespie with 48 percent of support from likely voters compared to Northam's 47 percent. Just 24 percent of responders said the opposite, that they only trust Northam on crime.

On healthcare: Northam 42; Gillespie 32. But she says there's plenty of room and time left for either "Northam to close the deal or for Gillespie to close the gap".

The poll also has libertarian candidate Cliff Hyra with 3 percent of the vote and another 3 percent undecided. In that poll, Northam's lead shrunk by several percentage points from earlier this month. The poll was conducted October 12-16 among 408 likely Virginia voters and has a margin of error of 4.9 percent.

"This has never been more than a five point race in Monmouth's polling, and that means either candidate has a very real shot at winning this thing".

Everyone is happy for Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
On Sunday, Joe took to Instagram to announce he had popped the question to Sophie after almost a year of dating. But despite their engagement, a source told Us Weekly that they are not rushing to tie the knot anytime soon.

Almost half of the likely voters in Virginia (45%) say they see their vote for governor as a way to send a message to Trump and the Republicans who control Congress.

More details have been released about former President Barack Obama's rally in Richmond. Trump lost Virginia to Hillary Clinton and Republicans in the Old Dominion have embraced the president at varying levels.

Voter turnout traditionally drops markedly a year after a presidential election, so Obama's appearance is an opportunity to solidify the Democrats' base vote in the Richmond area, including African-Americans and young voters, Holsworth said.

Former President George W. Bush spoke at a private fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie in town Monday night.
