Virginia has leaned blue in recent years, but a new Monmouth poll shows a dead heat between the Republican and the Democrat.
A new Monmouth University poll showed Republican Ed Gillespie and Democrat Ralph Northam tied in the race for Virginia’s governor seat with less than four months until Election Day.
Both candidates enjoyed 44 percent support, with nine percent of voters undecided. The Libertarian candidate accounted for the remaining three percent.

Recent polls had showed Northam ahead, as the Real Clear Politics average margin was seven points between the two candidates. But the most recent Monmouth poll shows that Gillespie has closed the gap since the last poll in June.
The Monmouth poll shows that independents favor Gillespie by a four-point margin, and the top issue for Virginians is health care.
