Observer Poll Shows Tight Races for White House, Governor, Senate in NC

Less than two weeks before the election, North Carolina is a battleground on multiple fronts with tight races for president, governor and U.S. Senate, according to a new Charlotte Observer poll. The poll shows Democrats Hillary Clinton and Roy Cooper and Republican Sen. Richard Burr each leading their opponents by two percentage points, within the margin of error. For statewide office, particularly high-profile races, it’s a purple state. Andy Taylor, political science, featured.
