New poll shows Trump, Clinton deadlocked in North Carolina
North Carolina could be the deciding state in the upcoming presidential election, the New York Times reports.
The final New York Times Upshot/Siena College survey, which was released on Monday, shows the two candidates deadlocked in a 44 percent to 44 percent tie. Gary Johnson has only 3 percent of the vote, down 8 percent from their last poll and 11 percent from their first North Carolina poll.
In the senator’s race, Republican senator Richard Burr holds a 46 percent to 45 percent lead over Democratic challenger Deborah Ross, while the gubernatorial race is just as close, with Attorney General Roy Cooper leading Gov. Pat McCrory by one point at 47 percent to 46 percent.
On Oct. 25, Clinton led Trump by 7 points in North Carolina, according to the poll. Since then, things have tightened significantly.
Though both candidates have several paths to victory, North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes could go a long way in securing the win.
