Poll: Hagan Still Leading Dole In NC - Obama gains

A second straight poll in North Carolina shows incumbent Liddy Dole in deep trouble.

Last week, PPP showed Hagan taking a 3 point lead.  Now, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research has released a new poll showing Kay Hagan extending her lead over Dole, 50-45 (48-43 without leaners). Survey in pdf format here.

Key findings:  
  •  Just 38% of voters approve of the way Dole is handling her job as a Senator.
  •  Only 22% of voters in North Carolina believe the nation is on the right track.

Respondents were also asked about their choice for president.  McCain holds a razor-thin margin over Obama 47-43 (Barr 4%).  Without leaners, the race is tied 43-43.  Bush won North Carolina by 12.5% in 2004 and 13% in 2000.

Key findings:  
  • 59% of respondents believe John McCain represents "more of the same."
  • Voters believe Barack Obama would handle the economy better by a 52-38 margin.
  • 70% of respondents believe John McCain "supports George Bush's policies."
  • Obama leads McCain 50-41 on the issue of "building strong alliances with other countries."
