Cal Cunningham surprisingly increases lead in North Carolina Senate race in 1st poll period after texting scandal
North Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham got caught in a scandal earlier this month when he admitted to exchanging romantic text messages with a woman who is not his wife. However, a new survey by SurveyUSA found that Cunningham actually increased his lead over incumbent Senator Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) After the news broke.
In the previous poll, Cunningham was up seven, but that brought a 10-point advantage in the iteration released Monday. The growing leeway is largely thanks to men and younger voters who have stepped up their support for the challenger. For example, Cunningham von Tillis went down by 11 among all men in September to two in October. Meanwhile, women and high-ranking voters switched more to Tillis after the scandal. Overall, however, the state of the race doesn't seem to have changed drastically.
SurveyUSA surveyed 900 adults across North Carolina between Oct. 8-11, of whom 746 are registered to vote in the state. An error rate was not reported. Read the full results here.
