CNN Poll for NC: Trump, Burr in tight races; McCrory losing big to Cooper

We’ve heard from Monmouth.  Now, here comes The Clinton News Network (done August 18-23 among 1009 adults; 912 registered voters, 3.5% MOE):PwTV0-Wg

  • President:  Hillary Clinton outpolls Donald Trump 44-43 percent with Libertarian Gary Johnson pulling 11 percent.  (He WON’T finish that high.)  This race is ANYBODY’s game in North Carolina right now.
  • US Senate: Richard Burr leads 49-46 over Deborah Ross among registered voters — barely within the margin of error.   The poll finds Burr’s lead expands to 5 percent over Ross when you consider respondents most likely to turn out in November. 
  • Governor: Here goes the heartburn, again.  CNN has Cooper up SIX points over McCrory.
