Hagan Looks Strong as GOP Can't Settle on a Challenger

A new Public Policy Polling survey suggests that it doesn't matter who the Republicans put forward to challenge Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) because she has a wide lead over all of them.

However, "there's still strong reason to think this will be a close race. Voters continue to be pretty closely divided on her job performance, with 43% approving and 39% disapproving. And the Republicans are being hurt by low name recognition at this point, with none of the potential candidates known to even half of the electorate. The race is likely to tighten up a good bit once the GOP settles on a candidate and that person becomes better known, but for now Hagan looks like she's in good shape."
