NC-Sen: Meredith College Poll Has Cal Cunningham (D) Beating Thom Tillis (R) 43-34


Some good news out of North Carolina today courtesy of Meredith College’s latest poll. The poll has Joe Biden beating Trump in North Carolina 47-40 but there’s also more good news for North Carolina Democrats:

The poll also shows good news for other Democrats in the state. Cooper leads his Republican challenger, Lt. Gov. Dan Forest, by roughly 20 points — 52 percent to 32 percent — six months out from Election Day. Meanwhile, in the state’s Senate race, Democrat Cal Cunningham leads Sen. Thom Tillis (R) 43.5 percent to 34.3 percent.

“With over six months to Election Day, Democratic candidates for major office in the state are in good position,” McLennan said. “The slide in the president’s job approval not only hurts him in the campaign against Joe Biden, but also hurts other Republican down ballot, like Senator Thom Tillis and Lt. Governor Dan Forest.”

“However, there is a lot of time for Republican candidates to improve their positions, as everyone expects North Carolina’s races to be very competitive on Election Day,” he added.

The Meredith poll surveyed 604 registered North Carolina voters online from April 27 to 28. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
