Down-ticket, the Democratic candidates continue to lead their Republican rivals, according to the poll. In the race for lieutenant governor, Democrat Justin Fairfax leads Republican state Sen. Jill Vogel, 50 percent to 45 percent. Seeking a second term as attorney general, incumbent Democrat Mark Herring leads John Adams, 49 percent to 45 percent.
