Two polls on the presidential race in Virginia, two very different results.
A new Mason-Dixon Polling and Research Inc. poll on Wednesday showed Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain about even.
The statewide telephone survey of 625 likely voters Monday and Tuesday showed 47 percent backed Obama, 45 percent supported McCain and eight percent were undecided.
The results are within the poll's margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points.
A new CNN/Time magazine poll showed Obama with a clear ten-point lead. That's outside the poll's sampling error margin of plus or minus four points for the October 19-21 phone survey of 647 likely voters.
