Holding Jumps Out to Lead in Latest Poll

From Carolina Journal:

Republican incumbent Rep. George Holding has garnered a significant lead against his opponents in the N.C. 2nd Congressional District race, according to the latest poll from the Civitas Institute.

The Civitas Institute, a conservative public policy organization, released poll data on Tuesday, Oct. 30, on the race between Holding, Democratic candidate Linda Coleman, and Libertarian Jeff Matemu. Between Oct. 24 and Oct. 28, SurveyUSA, on behalf of the Civitas Institute, surveyed 565 likely voters in the 2nd District. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.5 percent.

Early voting continues through Saturday and Election Day is one week from today, Tuesday, Nov. 6.

The September Civitas Poll showed a close race between Holding and Coleman, but now Holding is pulling ahead. Of those surveyed, 49 percent said they would vote for Holding compared to 40 percent who would choose Coleman. Just 2 percent said they would vote for Matemu while 9 percent are undecided.

Is the 2nd District race a “bellwether for the rest of the country?” Let’s hope so.
