During the September 12-23 period, a quintet of polls were conducted and recently released. Pollsters from Monmouth University, Public Policy Polling, Roanoke College, Christopher Newport University, and Fox News conducted surveys with sample sizes ranging from 499 (Monmouth) to 776 (Christopher Newport) individuals. All five find both Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie within the 40s. The best poll for Gillespie, from Fox News, finds the two tied at 42%. The strongest for Lt. Gov. Northam comes from Christopher Newport that gives him a six-point edge (47-41%).
