The findings aren't much better against the lesser known candidates. SurveyUSA found Hagan trailing nursing practitioner Heather Grant 46 percent to 44 percent. Against ex-Mayor Ted Alexander Hagan has 44 percent while Alexander gets 46 percent.
The poll also found 50 percent of voters said they disapprove of the job Hagan is doing while 38 percent said they approve.
SurveyUSA polled 2,200 North Carolina adults between March 27 and March 31. Of them, 1,930 were registered to vote while 433 were likely to vote.
The poll's finding's are a bit of a decline from a recent Public Policy Polling survey which found Hagan with a slight lead or was tied with most of the candidates surveyed by SurveyUSA.
