RALEIGH – Despite the best efforts of Democrats and Democrats in the media, a new poll of North Carolina voters shows President Donald Trump widening his lead over opponent Joe Biden. Republican Dan Forest’s numbers are improving too in the race for governor, with the new survey showing him now in a statistical tie with incumbent Democrat Roy Cooper.
From Cardinal Point Analytics:
“[A] North Carolina statewide poll and has found that President Donald Trump’s lead has widened over challenger and former Vice President Joe Biden. Last week, Trump-Biden was 48.6% to 47.7%, but this week, Trump is ahead 48.4% to 46.8%. President Trump continues to do well with younger and middle-aged voters as well as with Democrats and Non-Partisan voters.
US Senator Thom Tillis and Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham are in a statistical tie with Tillis edging out Cunningham 43.1% to 42.9%. There are more undecided voters in the US Senate race at 11.1%, which further adds to the “toss-up” status. Tillis has less Republican-base support than any other race surveyed this week.
Lt. Governor Dan Forest’s numbers have improved since last week and is now in a tie with incumbent Governor Roy Cooper. Forest now stands at 46.4% to Cooper’s 46.1%. There are still approximately 6% undecided, same as last week. Forest has the highest support among Republicans of any other candidate.
Cardinal Point’s voter preference survey was conducted between July 22–24, 2020, of approximately 735 likely North Carolina voters with a 3.6 percentage point margin of error at a 95% confidence level. […]”
President Donald Trump is, of course, facing the same headwinds that have defined much of his first term. The ‘Witch Hunt’ was never really called off; it just morphed into whatever form most useful for Democrats and their media friends. Still, this poll suggests he’s faring quite well despite the onslaught of pandemic blame and manufactured cultural upheaval.
It is not surprising that Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) has the lowest base support among the races these pollsters surveyed, considering how often he bucked that base to reach across the aisle, or how many times he condescended to conservatives while bending over for the Chamber of Commerce. His election season metamorphosis will not fool a great many Republicans; however, Republicans are also hyper-aware of how damaging and dangerous it would be to lose the U.S. Senate to the Democrats.
Dan Forest, on the other hand, enjoys the highest level of support among the candidates , according to these surveys. That’s a great sign, especially because some active Repulicans have worried about the lieutenant governor’s name ID and enthusiasm among rank-and-file voters. These results, at least, suggest that is not the cause for concern the Nervous Nellies are worried it will be.
Sending Roy Cooper packing in November is vital. Therefor, having Dan Forest in a statistical tie with Cooper is a welcome sight considering the significant incumbent advantage the latter enjoys. In 2020, where the country is being subjected to a Marxian cultural revolution, an exacerbated Pandemic Panic marked by blatant government overreach, and an economy suffering from a self-inflicted mandated recession, the case for Cooper is non-existent for any voters at all interested in conserving the American idea and leaving our kids better off than us.
