Roy Cooper leads Pat McCrory by 6 points in new poll, Clinton-Trump race remains tight
Roy Cooper leads Pat McCrory by six points in North Carolina’s gubernatorial race in a new poll released nine days before Election Day.
An NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released Sunday has Cooper at 51 and McCrory at 45.
The poll was conducted Oct. 25-26 of 1,018 registered voters (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points) and 780 likely voters (plus-minus 3.5 percentage points).
Two polls released Sunday have Richard Burr and Deborah Ross tied in the North Carolina Senate race. A third poll, Gravis, has Ross ahead by three points.
A new national poll also show Hillary Clinton holds a slim lead over Donald Trump.
An ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll released Sunday showed Clinton ahead 46% to 45% — narrower than Saturday’s 2-point Clinton edge.
In CNN’s Poll of Polls, which averages results for the five most recently released national surveys, Clinton has a 47% to 42% advantage over Trump. That’s unchanged from the most recent Poll of Polls on Saturday.
