Never mind that Republicans have been working the state with ad buys and personal appearances …
We may see the ‘wave’ from the 2018 STILL out their against Republicans….
Even in Red state North Carolina were they have a ‘do-over’ after some irregularities on the GOP side ……
Democrat Dan McCready has a narrow advantage over Republican Dan Bishop heading into the final days of the Sept. 10 redo election in North Carolina’s 9th District, according to a new bipartisan poll for Inside Elections.
The survey, conducted from Monday through Wednesday by Harper Polling and Clarity Campaign Labs, showed McCready ahead of Bishop, 46 percent to 42 percent, with two third-party candidates receiving a combined 3 percent. Some 8 percent of voters were “unsure” and the survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.19 percentage points.
When voters who were leaning toward one candidate were included, McCready’s advantage extended to 49-44 percent.
In November 2018, McCready finished less than a point behind Republican Mark Harris, but a winner was never certified or seated in Congress because of allegations of fraud by a GOP consultant affiliated with the Harris campaign. (Harris opted against running in the redo election.)
President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a rally in North Carolina the day before the election and tweeted his support for Bishop the day that rally was announced. But Trump’s job approval rating in the district has deteriorated since last fall. The new poll found 47 percent approved of the job he’s doing compared to 48 percent who disapproved.
In the final Siena College poll for The New York Times last cycle, conducted Oct. 26-30, Trump’s job rating in the district was 52 percent approve/41 percent disapprove. He carried the district by 11 points in 2016….
Early voting for this Congressional District began August 21st….
