Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) and Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin are statistically tied in a new poll released this weekend, as Virginians prepare to head to the ballot box on Tuesday to choose their next governor.

The poll, conducted by Roanoke College, found that McAuliffe leads Youngkin among likely voters by one percentage point in a 47 percent to 46 percent matchup.

Six percent of the 571 likely voters polled between Oct. 14 and Oct. 28., however, remain undecided. And with a polling margin of error of 4.1 percentage points, the two candidates are in a dead heat.

Republicans appeared to be more enthusiastic about the race. Forty-nine percent of Republicans said they were extremely enthusiastic about voting, compared to just 32 percent of Democrats.

The contentious Virginia gubernatorial campaign season will finally culminate on Tuesday, when Virginians weigh in on the next chief of the Old Dominion.

Interest in the off-year race is running high as experts say it could serve as a bellwether for next years midterm elections.

McAuliffe and Youngkin have traded jabs throughout the campaign season, knocking each other for their policy views and affiliation with national politicians.

According to the poll, 38 percent of likely Virginia voters think the economy is the most important issue ahead of the election, followed by education at 22 percent and COVID-19 at 13 percent.

McAuliffe has sought to link Youngkin to Trump since he lost Virginia in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, but the Republican nominee is trying to keep his distance from the former president.
