Poll: Few Voters Paying Attention to Upcoming Va. Election

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A new poll shows that two thirds of potential voters aren't following the news of the upcoming legislative elections in November that will determine which political party controls the state Senate.
    
The poll from the Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University shows 66 percent of respondents were not paying attention to the campaigns.
    
Both parties are fighting over a handful of competitive state Senate races, and Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who the poll said had a 53 percent approval rating, has made retaking the state Senate a top priority.
    
The poll was based on interviews with 851 registered voters and was conducted between Sept. 15 and Sept. 23. The margin of error is 3.4 percent.
