DescriptionThe race for governor of West Virginia is "looking more and more like a toss up" between acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, a Democrat, and Republican challenger Bill Maloney, a national polling organization concluded this morning.

That was the conclusion drawn after a Public Policy Polling survey showed Tomblin is now leading Maloney by just a one-point margin of 47-46.

That is a decline from one month earlier when Tomblin's lead was 46-40 and an even larger drop from earlier this year when Tomblin was in the lead by as much as 33 points.

Voters in the Mountain State go to the polls on Tuesday for the special gubernatorial election.

Polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.

According to PPP, the swing in votes could be attributed to a stepped up media blitz by the Maloney camp against Tomblin.
