Public Policy Polling has released a poll with a hypothetical head-to-head match up between Senator Richard Burr and N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper. If the election were held today it appears that Roy Cooper would run away with it.
Tom Jensen, who according to comments found at Red State has the power to part the seas, has this to say about the results:
If Attorney General Roy Cooper decides to run for the Senate in 2010, you can put Richard Burr's name right to the top of the list of endangered incumbents nationally.
Cooper leads Burr by five points in a hypothetical pairing. He also has a similarly high profile to Burr, with only 34% of voters in the state having no opinion about his job performance, compared to 37% who are ambivalent about Burr. It is quite unusual for a lower ranking state official to start out with similar name recognition to a US Senator.
