A new poll of the Virginia's gubernatorial election hints that the race may be tightening between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli. According to Quinnipiac's survey of 1,182 likely voters, 45 percent say they will vote for McAuliffe and 41 percent say they will vote for Cuccinelli. Nine percent say they will vote for Libertarian party candidate Robert Sarvis.

The four-point gap in the final days of the campaign is the closest Cuccinelli has come to McAuliffe in a poll since early September, and it's a three-point jump for Cuccinelli since Quinnipiac's last poll of the race two weeks prior. The Real Clear Politics poll average still shows McAuliffe with more than a nine-point lead over Cuccinelli.

Election Day in Virginia is November 5.
