The tables have turned on President Barack Obama in Virginia, according to the latest polls.
While earlier this month the President was enjoying a fairly sizeable lead in the Commonwealth according to one poll, three polls released this week have made it clear that his re-election chances remain very uncertain.
Here's a closer look at the latest polls and news from the battleground state of Virginia.
Polling numbers favor neither candidate: While Virginia polls such as the Washington Post in April, the Virginia Pilot / ODU in June, and Public Policy Polling on July 8 all pointed to large leads for President Obama of 7 to 8 points, the good times may be over for the president. He still leads in two of three recent polls, but each polling number is well within the margin of polling error, producing a statistical tie.
Quinnipiac showed a deadlocked race on Thursday, with each candidate scoring 44 percent of the vote of those surveyed. The same polling company had favored Obama 50 to 42 in March.
Romney gets better marks on the economy, with 47 percent to Obama's 42 percent on that key election issue. Obama, however, is liked for wanting to raise taxes on those earning more than $250,000 a year, earning the support of 59 percent of those polled.
Rasmussen Reports issued polling data on Wednesday that gave President Obama a mere 1-point advantage over his opponent. With 47 percent to 46 percent choosing Obama, there were only 3 percent of voters still undecided.
Earlier in the week, the Purple Poll from Purple Strategies gave Obama a 2-point lead with 46 percent of the vote to Romney's 44 percent. Obama had a poor favorability with 45 percent approving of his job performance and 50 percent disapproving.
Cuccinelli says President's political allies "doing fine": On Romney's campaign website, Virginia Attorney General had the most recent posting for Virginia, where there are door knocking and phone banking activities planned for Fairfax, Alexandria, and Springfield on Saturday.
On Tuesday, Cucinelli accused the president of playing to his "cronies" who are "doing fine" thanks to taxpayer dollars that Cuccinelli claimed were being steered back to his political handlers.
Obama camp claims they are standing up for the middle class: The latest blog posts from President Obama's Virginia election team were written on Wednesday and focused on a more upbeat message. The posts highlighted a Norfolk educator named Dorothy who said she would not "sit out" the election and was out registering voters to help the middle class out, while Richmond neighborhood team leader Marvin Lindsey spoke to the positive future he wanted to see for his autistic son.
