Some slight tightening. McDonnell is still the clear favorite, but I would expect this race to get within 3-4% by election day. Deeds is going to do better in rural Virginia than some expect, but McDonnell will do better in Northern Virginia (he is from that area) than is expected. If McDonnell doesn't screw up some how or another, he should remain the favorite up until election day.
