(CNN) - With three weeks to go until Election Day in Virginia, a new poll indicates Democrat Terry McAuliffe holding a single digit advantage over Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in the battle for governor.
And the survey, by the Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University, also suggests that the partial government shutdown is hurting Cuccinelli more than McAuliffe. Virginia is home to a large number of federal government and defense industry workers, many of whom have been impacted by the two-week long shutdown.

Booker's 14-point lead over Lonegan is virtually unchanged from Quinnipiac's previous poll, which was released last week.

And while the Quinnipiac University survey shows the incumbent governor ahead of Buono, a state senator, by a margin of 62%-33% among likely voters, it also indicates that voters largely disagree with Christie on his opposition to legalizing same-sex marriage in the Garden State.
