Clinton leads Trump, 44 to 39 percent, according to the Winthrop University Poll.

“With several negative ‘October surprises’ coming out and affecting both candidates, we have seen a tightening of the race in national polls. However, while Clinton’s lead in Virginia has shrunk from its highest point, she still leads Donald Trump in the Commonwealth," said poll Director Scott Huffmon. 

The poll also shows Trump still struggling to gain support among members of the GOP. 

Only 68 percent of Republicans had a favorable view of him, while 83 percent of Democrats viewed Clinton favorably. 

The Winthrop University poll survey of 712 likely voters, conducted between Oct. 23 and 30, has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points. 

Clinton has a similar lead in a RealClearPolitics polling average, 48 to 43 percent.
