Is Ken Cuccinelli closing in on Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race? The latest poll from Emerson College shows McAuliffe, the Democrat, with 42 percent support and Cuccinelli, the Republican, with 40 percent. Libertarian Robert Sarvis has 13 percent in the poll of 874 likely voters.

The two-point lead for McAuliffe is the smallest he's had in any poll since September. Emerson's previous poll, from September, showed McAuliffe with a five-point lead. The Real Clear Politics average of polls still shows McAuliffe ahead by more than six points.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 5.
