Quinnipiac: Kaine 51, Allen 44

A new Quinnipiac/New York Times/CBS News poll of the Virginia Senate race shows Tim Kaine leading GOP nominee George Allen by 7 points -- a result that differs from other recent polls of the race showing the two contenders in a dead heat.

The poll shows Kaine leading Allen 51 percent to 44 percent. Five percent of voters remain undecided.

The previous Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll of the contest, in August, showed a much tighter race: Kaine with 48 percent and Allen with 46 percent. That result is similar to other recent surveys in the Virginia race, including an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll last week tthat showed each candidate with 46 percent support.

The survey shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney by a slightly smaller margin that Kaine leads Allen by -- 50 percent to 46 percent.

The Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll was conducted September 11 - 17 and surveyed 1,474 likely voters, for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 2.6 percentage points.
