Mason-Dixon Poll: Tight Races in Virginia and Florida

leave a comment »

Mason-Dixon has released new polls this morning for the battlegrounds of Florida and Virginia that show those two states are tightening up. Both results are within the margin of error, which indicate a statistical dead heat.

In Florida, Sen. John McCain holds only a one percentage-point lead over Sen. Barack Obama, 46 percent to 45 percent. Earlier this month, another Mason-Dixon poll showed Obama with a two percentage-point advantage in the Sunshine State, 48 percent to 46 percent.

And in Virginia, Obama is up by two percentage points, 47 percent to 45 percent; earlier this month, McCain was ahead by three in the state, 48 percent to 45 percent.

The polls were conducted in each state from Oct. 20-21, and they both have margin of errors of plus-minus 4 percent.
