Poll: Burr leads Marshall, but “it is anyone’s game”

New numbers released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling show North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race is far from decided. Senator Richard Burr leads Elaine Marshall 38% to 33%, but 20% of the voters questioned remain undecided.

Many voters have yet to form an opinion on either of the candidates. Twenty-eight percent of North Carolina voters are unsure of their opinion of Senator Burr and 58% are unsure of Marshall.

While Burr enjoys the security of  a strong Republican base, North Carolinians think he is less visible than former Senator Elizabeth Dole.

“We are four months out from the election and with a fifth of voters undecided, it is
anyone’s game at this point,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Both candidates, especially Marshall need to increase visibility and energize voters to
ensure their victory.”

The poll, which  surveyed 502 North Carolina voters, also finds freshman Senator Kay Hagan struggling to connect with her constituents. Just 33% of voters approve of Senator Hagan, 41 disapprove and 26 are unsure.

The poll’s margin of error is +/- 4.4%.

    I was wondering what the use of dragging someone out of the oil in the gulf, well NOW I see why they are using it to slander a good man anyone sucking up to obama is a loser to start with. yes I miss Bush so much that just the name spoken makes me tearup with the thoughts we have a moron in the white house.
    As for Kay Hagan who claims to be a God fearing person is taking us on the road to Hell!

    I think it very disrespectful to the President and to Sen. Hagan
    to call them Morons. It does appear to me that the closet to an
    incompetent individual occupied the Oval Office from 2000 until
    the happy end of his term in 2008. You must watch Fox Version
    of the news all day.
