A new Meredith Poll shows that the US Senate race in North Carolina is tightening with two weeks to go until Election Day due to a high number of undecideds.
"Of the respondents indicating an interest in voting in the Republican primary, just under one-third (32.7%) indicate they will vote for Ted Budd, while 25.7% indicate they will vote for former Governor Pat McCrory,"
Meredith said in a release of the poll. "It is worth noting that over one-third of respondents indicate they were not sure, meaning that the race could still go either way."
This news comes on the heels of a press conference held yesterday by Gov. McCrory, in which he predicted the race would tighten in the final two weeks, seemingly confirming his comments. McCrory cited undecided voters and the impact his ads are having on the Budd campaign. "Most polls show that over a third of the electorate is undecided,"
McCrory said. "And we have our ads up on TV across the state in a major sustained way for the first time in this race. We see a clear path to victory even as the 'Club for Chinese Growth' tries to buy this Senate nomination and take over the Republican Party in North Carolina."
The tightening race in North Carolina coincides with a disappointing loss in Ohio for the Club for Growth, where JD Vance won despite their millions of dollars spent against him.
