Rasmussen North Carolina Poll May Have Us Wearing Neck Braces Soon


I noted yesterday that as responsive and open as Public Policy Polling is, I have to take PPP results in North Carolina with a grain of salt. They had incumbent Sen. Richard Burr leading Democrat Elaine Marshall by only 38 percent to 33 percent.

Today, Rasmussen finds Burr leading by 52 percent to 37 percent. Interestingly, Rasmussen had them nearly tied last month, a result that showed a huge bounce for Marshall.

I’ll have more on this issue in a bit.
