A new Quinnipiac poll shows President Barack Obama leading all four potential Republican challengers in the crucial swing state of Virginia.  

In hypothetical general election matchups, the president leads likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney, 50 percent to 42 percent, and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, 49 percent to 40 percent.

The TPM Poll Average of Virginia captures the steady gains Obama has made over Romney in the Commonwealth since the new year.
