Obama Maintains Lead in Virginia

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Virginia finds President Obama leading Mitt Romney by five points, 51% to 46%.

When third party candidates are included, Obama leads Romney 49% to 45% with Gary Johnson at 2% and Virgil Goode and Jill Stein both at just 1%.

Key findings: "Virginia continues to look like it may be something of a firewall state for Obama. PPP has now polled it 9 times this cycle, and President Obama has led by at least 4 points on all 9 of the polls. He's been ahead by 5 points, 5 points, 8 points, and 8 points over the course of the four surveys we've conducted in 2012."
