ABC/WaPo Poll Shows NC Senate And WH Races Tied

The Washington Post reports:

Republican Sen. Thom Tillis and Democrat Cal Cunningham are locked in a toss-up Senate race in North Carolina, where roughly a quarter of voters say the challenger’s extramarital affair is important in their vote but with far more saying control of the Senate and the incumbent’s support for President Trump matter, a Washington Post-ABC News poll finds.

The Post-ABC poll shows that, among likely voters, Cunningham is at 49 percent, and Tillis is at 47 percent, a gap well within the survey’s 4.5-percentage-point margin of sampling error. More than 9 in 10 Democrats and Republicans support their party’s candidate, while independents split almost down the middle: 48 percent for Cunningham and 45 percent for Tillis.

Cunningham’s 49 percent support among likely voters is identical to that of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, knotted in a close race against Trump, who stands at 48 percent.
