Election day is Tuesday and the newest polling reveals Republican Glenn Youngkin has taken a small lead over Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s race for governor. If Youngkin wins, it is going to be the first time in twelve years that voters within the state elect a Republican governor.

In addition they debate whether or not a poll asking People to decide on what they suppose is the most effective decade of their lives is an effective or dangerous use of polling. Lastly, they spherical up a number of the different noteworthy poll measures and native places of work being voted on this week across the nation, together with a police reform initiative in Minneapolis.
