Burr leads Marshall by just a single point, 43-42
For the first time, one of the Democratic candidates is statistically tied with Richard Burr. Go Elaine!
According to crosstabs, she has a huge advantage in the (704) and (919) area codes, and she's holding her own Down East. Her only real problem area is (336), where Cal dropped a significant amount of money (and where Burr lives). She is also stomping Burr in the 18-29 demographic; interesting since that might be the group of voters least likely to know Elaine. In a year where turnout is down and apathy rules on Election Day, the candidate who can energize not-yet-disillusioned young voters to come out to the polls may have a decisive advantage.
Why not give Elaine twenty bucks and tell Richard Burr who's boss?
