Our July poll results are in. We still have Bev Perdue with a slight lead over Pat McCrory 43-40. Libertarian Michael Munger comes in with 2%.
McCrory has been inching down one point each month, while Perdue has held steady as a rock at 43%.
Are McCrory’s TV ads beginning to wear off? Or is this just part of the normal fluctuations of polling?
McCrory is still within the margin of error, but it’s never good to be sliding backwards.
Either way if you’d have asked any Republican gubernatorial candidate over the past 50 years (maybe 100) if they’d be happy being only 3 points down in July, they’d be thrilled.
Stay tuned for new Senate numbers tomorrow and new Presidential numbers Monday. Then we should have some real interesting results to release Tuesday that will either make you laugh or cry — maybe both. (I know, I tease…)
