Clinton won Virginia, one of the two states with gubernatorial races this year, in the 2016 presidential election. 

Voters' opinions about Trump will be a weighty factor in the election, according a poll released Tuesday by the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University.

The survey found that 39 percent of Virginia voters in the poll said Trump will play a role in their choice between Northam and Gillespie, while 28 percent said the president is a major factor. The president, however, was a much stronger factor for Democrats expecting to vote than for Republicans.
