Virginia Men Wrestle with Obama-McCain Decision: Eight days until votes are counted in Virginia: Obama 52%, McCain 43%. Surprising ongoing volatility among Virginia men, where McCain has led in 4 SurveyUSA tracking polls, been tied in 1, and trailed in 2, including today's. McCain today has his highest number to date in Southeast Virginia, but his lowest number to date in Northeast Virginia. 800 adults were interviewed 10/25/08 and 10/26/08. Of them 764 were registered to vote. Of them, 671 were determined by SurveyUSA to have already voted, or to be likely to vote on or before Election Day. Those who tell SurveyUSA they have already voted disproportionately vote for Obama in the Presidential contest and for Democrat Mark Warner in the US Senate contest.
