As we head into the final stretch of Virginia's governor's race, a new poll out this morning from Quinnipiac University suggests that recent gridlock in Congress and the partial government shutdown won't have a major affect on voters at the ballot box.
The survey finds Democrat Terry McAuliffe leads Republican Ken Cuccinelli 46 percent to 36 percent, while 10 percent favor Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis. That's with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The numbers almost the same as a poll two weeks ago, also from Quinnipiac.
Josh Kraushaar, editor-in-chief of National Journal's Hotline, joined WAMU Morning Edition host Matt McCleskey to discuss the poll and more.
