In the race to represent Virginia in the United States Senate, Public Policy Polling has Governor Kaine steadily leading Senator Allen in a poll taken between October 4th and October 7th.

Democratic Candidate Kaine is holding a 7-point lead, with 51% of the people surveyed saying they would vote for him if the election were held today and 44% saying the would vote in favor if Republican Candidate Allen; with a margin of error of +/- 3.6%.  The survey was taken by 735 likely voters in Virginia, with 38% identifying as democratic, 32% as republican and 30% as independent or other.

Polls taken within the first week of October by Rasmussen Reports and NBC/WSJ/Marist also have Kaine with a 7-point advantage, while and Real Clear Politics has him leading by 4.7%.  This signifies a large shift in the campaign as many past polls had this race at a virtual tie until midway through September.

Democrats, who hold a majority in the Senate with 51 seats, are defending 23 of them this election cycle, while Republicans are only fighting for 10.
