NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - A poll conducted by the Judy Ford Wason Center at Christopher Newport University ahead of Election Day shows Congresswoman Elaine Luria and presidential candidate Joe Biden, both Democrats, leading in the 2nd Congressional District.

The 2nd Congressional District stretches between Virginia Beach and Williamsburg.

According to CNU's findings, Luria is leading her opponent, Republican and former Rep. Scott Taylor, 50% to 43%. The two debated Tuesday night on a number of issues, including gun control, health care and tax laws.

CNU found that Luria's 7-point lead over Taylor is bolstered by support among women, older voters and college-educated voters.

Taylor's 2018 election fraud scandal has had an impact on his favorability rating, with -5 to Luria's +38.

For president, Biden is leading President Donald Trump 49% to 40% in the 2nd Congressional District, CNU's poll reported.

The poll also found that voters' top concerns during the 2020 election are the economy, COVID-19 and health care.
