Dem poll: Kay Hagan lead vanishes… Brannon has Edge

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.

Running for 2014 NC Senate: Greg Brannon

GregBrannonFlag

Dr. Greg Brannon, practicing OB/GYN critical care surgeon out of Cary, NC, officially announced that he will run for Kay Hagan’s Senate Seat in the 2014 election.

The announcement came months after a grassroots effort was formed to convince Brannon to run for the position. “Draft Dr. Greg Brannon to Senate Run 2014,” a social media page created by several grassroots supporters and friends in the North Carolina tea party and liberty activist movement, attempted to convince Brannon to throw his hat in the ring by displaying grassroots republican support for his potential candidacy.

Brannon officially announced his campaign Saturday afternoon in front of a mixed audience of the NC-RLC and the Eastern NC Tea Party, at a Winterville, NC event, “LiberTEA Rally.” The event organizers were unaware that Brannon would make his initial campaign announcement at their event, calling it a surprise.

“(We were) proud to be part of the event. I wasn’t aware it was his first public announcement,” said Diane Rufino, Founder of the Eastern NC Tea Party.

The Eastern North Carolina Republican Liberty Caucus said of the announcement, “We were pleased that invited speaker, Dr. Greg Brannon … choose our Liber-Tea rally as the setting to make his first public announcement regarding his candidacy. … Dr. Brannon is a strong advocate for the US Constitution, personal liberty, and freedom. We look forward to his focus on these essential issues during his candidacy.”

Dr. Greg Brannon is the President of FoundersTruth.org and a weekly radio guest of the Bill LuMaye Show out of Raleigh.
