The poll found that Kaine has the support of 88 percent of Democrats in the survey and leads Stewart by better than a 2-to-1 margin among independents polled who have determined how they will vote.
Stewart, meanwhile, had the support of 66 percent of Republican or Republican-leaning voters who participated in the survey, which was conducted from July 10-30 and surveyed 802 adults. The poll reports a margin of error of 3.59 percentage points for the sample of likely voters.
