Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) is trailing Republican gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin by 8 points among likely voters in the latest Fox News poll, though the two remain in dead heat among registered voters.
The poll released Thursday found that 53 percent of likely voters are backing Youngkin, with 45 percent in favor of McAuliffe. The margin of error among likely voters is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
When it comes to registered voters overall, however, the race is deadlocked, with 48 percent backing Youngkin and 47 percent supporting McAuliffe.
Among registered voters, the margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
The new numbers, released on Thursday, come five days before Election Day for Virginia’s gubernatorial race, which will cap off a tense campaign season in a race that experts are saying could serve as a forerunner to next year’s midterm elections.
