Dem poll: Kay Hagan lead vanishes… Brannon has Edge

November 12th, 2013 by NC Tea Party Staff Categories: Featured 2 Responses

Incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) is near the top of national Republicans’ target list for 2014 — and a new poll shows her lead over her potential GOP challengers has all but evaporated.

Hagan trails physician Greg Brannon, the Rand Paul-endorsed candidate in the race, by 1 point: he leads 44 percent to 43 percent.

Against state House Speaker Thom Tillis, Hagan leads by only 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent, according to the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. She leads Rev. Mark Harris by 2 points as well, 43 percent to 41 percent, and nurse Heather Grant by 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent.

That’s a huge difference from PPP’s September poll, which gave Hagan leads of anywhere from 12 to 17 points against all possible GOP challengers.

gan’s approval ratings are underwater in the poll: 49 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the job she’s doing, compared with 44 percent who approve.

The poll also suggests she could be suffering from the implementation of Obamacare: 69 percent of those surveyed said the law’s rollout has been unsuccessful so far, compared with 25 percent who say it’s been a success.

In the four-way GOP primary, Tillis leads the pack with 20 percent. He’s followed by Harris at 14 percent, Brannon at 11 percent and Grant at 8 percent. Just under half of GOP voters are undecided.

The poll surveyed 701 North Carolina voters from Nov. 8 to Nov. 11. The margin of error is +/- 3.7 percent for the general election questions and +/- 4.4 percent for the GOP primary questions.

    Dr. Brannon has shown he is not capable of being elected by opening his mouth and putting his foot in it. He has equated Mitt Romney with Barack Obama and related Mitt with the word tyranny. How is it the tea party comes up with these people. he will never win over Kay Hagan. All she has to do is keep her mouth shut and she will be the next NC Senator. Stop supporting this guy. he is a liabliity. Tillis has done well in NC and will be a fine Senator. Support a winner.

      Not so Tom , We have been told this for years . Kay has showed us what she about . And for me she don’t care what N.C. thinks. Im for one paying the price . Tillis is a game player too. Better than kay I will say by far. But that don’t take much. Dr. Brannon stand’s on the Constitution . And the one’s befor me died standing on that. Martin luther {king] would never had to march one day . If our leader’s would have up held the CONSTITUTION . Im going to give Brannon his chance .
