    Poll results released Tuesday say Donald Trump is leading Hillary Clinton among Virginia voters in the race for the presidency.

    Of registered Virginia voters polled by the Hampton University Center for Public Policy, 44 percent said they would vote for Trump and Mike Pence. Clinton and Tim Kaine won 41 percent of voters, and 15 percent of respondents said they were undecided.

    The gap between Clinton and Trump falls within the 4.57 percent margin of error. The poll included 802 registered voters who said they were likely to vote. Voters were reached from Oct. 26 to 30.

    Hampton said Clinton had a 2-point lead in the state before news broke Oct. 28 that FBI director James Comey wrote in a letter to congressional leaders that investigators would take another look at sensitive government information that passed through the private email sever Clinton used while serving as secretary of state.

    Mike Rubino, a Trump campaign adviser in Virginia, said the candidate was seeing momentum in the state.

    "Virginia voters have had enough of the same old corruption and back-room deals from career Washington insiders like the Clintons, and we will vote for change in November," Rubino said in a statement.
