Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli is trailing his Democratic counterpart in the polls.
With just a month left until Virginia's gubernatorial elections, polling suggests Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe has an edge over his Republican opponent Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli. The poll from Christopher Newport University shows McAuliffe with a 9-point lead, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent. It also shows McAuliffe with a 12 point advantage among women in Virginia.
McAuliffe has portrayed Cuccinelli as being unsympathetic to the rights of women and Democratic strategists say the strategy is working. Matt McCleskey is joined by National Journal's Beth Reinhard to discuss the story.
