Latest CNU poll has Northam leading Gillespie

On Friday, a new Wason Center CNU Poll shows Democrat Ralph Northam leading Republican Ed Gillespie, 50-to-43 percent, with four percent of voters are still undecided.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVEC) -- It's the final stretch of the race for Richmond, and time is running out for candidates to make their final push to voters.

On Friday, a new poll from the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University shows Democrat Ralph Northam leading Republican Ed Gillespie, 50-to-43 percent, with four percent of voters are still undecided.

Libertarian candidate Cliff Hyra is polling at just three percent. The poll's margin of error is +/- 3.8 percent.

This poll reverses what Hampton University found on Wednesday. Their poll had Gillespie with a 40.5-to-32.6 percent lead over Northam, but 26.8 percent of people did not know or were undecided.

Meanwhile, President Trump is tweeting his support for Gillespie, who has kept the president at a distance.

The President calls Gillespie "strong on crime" and even touched on the issue of Confederate monuments.

In the same series of tweets, Trump attacked Northam, accusing the candidate of not showing up for meetings.

Northam fired back online, saying he served in the Army for eight years and took care of sick kids as a doctor.
