Republican attorney general Ken Cuccinelli leads Democratic opponent Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race by 10 points, according to a poll released Sunday by the Washington Post. Among likely voters in this November's election, 51 percent said they would support Cuccinelli, while 41 percent said they would support McAuliffe.

The poll comes the same day McAuliffe officially launched his campaign for governor, his second after failing to win the Democratic nomination in 2009. Cuccinelli, who was elected attorney general in 2009, is seeking to succeed his fellow Republican, the term-limited Bob McDonnell, in Richmond.
