NC-Sen: NBC/Marist Poll Has Cal Cunningham (D) Beating Thom Tillis 53-43, Biden Beating Trump 52-46

2 min read

Some very good news today out of North Carolina courtesy of NBC/Marist’s new poll:

Joe Biden holds a modest six-point lead with likely voters over President Donald Trump in the hard-fought swing state of North Carolina, a new NBC/Marist poll shows.

Among likely voters, Biden’s support stands at 52 percent, compared to 46 percent for the incumbent president. (Among all registered voters in the state, the former vice president’s lead is similar, at 51 percent to Trump’s 46 percent.)

Biden’s edge is within the poll’s margin of error of +/-4.7 percentage points for likely voters and +/-4.1 percentage points for registered voters. (A +/-4.7 margin of error means that pollsters believe each candidate’s actual vote percentage could be as much as 4.7 percentage points higher or lower).

The poll also shows a 10-point advantage for Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham, who hopes to oust first-term GOP incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis.

Cunningham gets the support of 53 percent of likely voters, while Tillis gets 43 percent — an advantage outside the margin of error — despite Cunningham facing an infidelity scandal which had threatened to upend the race. Cunningham’s lead is identical among registered voters.
