Andrew Mark Miller, Fox News, November 2, 2021

Virginia voters found that the debate over critical race theory (CRT) being taught in schools played a significant role in motivating them to head to the polls, a Fox News Voter Analysis survey found.

The survey, which polled more than 2,500 Virginia voters, found that 25% of them viewed the CRT debate as the single most important factor they considered when deciding who to support for governor.

Of the quarter of voters who labeled CRT the most important issue, 70% supported Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin and 29% supported the former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Overall, 72% of Virginia voters said CRT was an “important” factor in their vote while 28% said it was not important.
