President Trump: 'Ed Gillespie Will Be a Great Governor of Virginia'”

President Donald Trump is giving his strongest endorsement to date of Republican Ed Gillespie in Virginia's closely watched race for governor.

Nonetheless, this is who Donald Trump is backing in the Virginia gubernatorial election: a man who wants to win office so badly that he will cater to white supremacists who revere the Confederacy.

Gillespie is a Washington insider who has largely kept the president at an arm's distance so far, fearful of alienating Virginia's moderate voters.

What HU found is that 41 percent of voters who said they were likely to vote favored Gillespie, and that 33 percent favored Northam.

Former president George W. Bush, who spoke at two of his rallies in October, endorsed him too. However, the gap between Northam and Gillespie was slightly smaller in CNU's latest poll.

Northam has carried slight leads in other recent polls conducted by Christopher Newport University. Gillespie's Democratic opponent is Ralph Northam, who Real Clear Politics puts at an average of 3.9 points over Gillespie.

The new poll was conducted by the Hampton University Center for Public Policy and questioned 750 "likely voters" registered voters in the Virginia General Election.
