A new independent survey shows Virginia's contest between President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney is in a dead heat. Quinnipiac University found each candidate is favored by 44% of the Virginians surveyed. Researcher Peter Brown says Quinnipiac also asked survey respondents about the U.S. Senate race. Brown says Republican George Allen received 46% support and Democrat Tim Kaine had 44%. He notes the margin of error is 2.4%, and both the presidential and Senate races have no clear favorites.
