Hagan Barely Holds Lead in North Carolina

A new Public Policy Polling survey in North Carolina finds Sen. Kay Hagan (D) leads challenger Thom Tillis (R) by two points, 38% to 36%, with Libertarian candidate Sean Haugh pulling 11%.

Key finding: "Haugh's presence in the race has the potential to be a headache for Tillis moving forward if the contest remains this competitive -- people planning to vote for him right now say they would support Tillis over Hagan 47% to 27% if they had to choose between the major party candidates. When you reallocate those folks the race is tied at 41% -- usually a 2 point difference like that doesn't matter but given the closeness of this one it could."
