  1. “The senator gets 9% of Democrats…”

    So why does he govern from the left? He still can’t win the Democrats.

    1. It is not the voters in NC that Burr cares about. It is the special interest lobbyists on K Street. That is who he panders to.

  2. Virtually all of Burr’s fundraising is coming from the elitist GOP Establishment in Washington–which is also supporting Hillary. Little wonder there is no grassroots support for Burr in NC.

  3. Something is wrong here.

    If McCrory gets of 55% of male respondents and
    48% of female respondents, then

    HE HAS TO BE OVER 50% of the vote.

  4. “If McCrory gets of 55% of male respondents and
    48% of female respondents, then HE HAS TO BE OVER 50% of the vote.”

    Not if they asked 100 males and 10,000 females. Or, maybe they didn’t report the votes of those with unknown gender.

    1. Either way, I’d take this result on election day. Burr out, McCrory in (and a GOP majority on local Board of Elections) will work. And with the Senate majority looking increasingly secure, the prospect and potential rewards of jettisoning Burr become increasingly attractive. Tillis take heed.

  5. The yellow dog Republicans will probably pull Burr’s cojones out of the fire. After all, why would we hold anyone accountable for being the worst senator ever?
