Thom Tillis has been sitting in Washington for nearly six years now. But if you look at his polling, it appears the man is — like one Marty McFly — going ‘Back in Time.’
In the latest Civitas poll, Tillis is topping Democrat Cal Cunningham 38 – 34 percent (with 23 percent undecided).
The Civitas crowd — as well as the NCGOPe — are citing that polling as good news. That’s in spite of the fact that there is a 4.38 percent margin of error, and that four-point lead is being held by a one-term incumbent over a virtual unknown.
Granted, it’s early. People are thinking about a lot of other things besides politics. Perhaps, Tillis may be learning a hard lesson — possibly the one his buddy Pat McCrory learned in 2016 — about thumbing one’s nose at key elements of your base.
