Hagan Retains Slight Lead Over GOP Field Despite Obamacare Attacks

February 26, 2014 11:53 a.m.

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) holds a very slight lead over all her possible challengers in the Republican primary, according to a new poll.

The poll, from American Insights, however founded a high number of undecided voters. Against House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-NC), Hagan leads 38 percent to 35 percent. In a matchup with Rev. Mark Harris, Hagan leads 39 percent to 35 percent and against tea partier Greg Brannon Hagan gets 38 percent while Brannon gets just 36 percent.

This poll’s findings might come as good news to Hagan after a significant amount of spending attacking Hagan on Obamacare and other issues, and she’s actually holding a better lead than in other surveys of the North Carolina Senate race.

Still, the poll wasn’t all good news for Hagan. The poll also found that 37 percent of North Carolinians approve of the job Hagan is doing while 20 percent said they are undecided. A total of 39 percent said they disapprove of the job Hagan is doing.

The poll was conducted among 611 North Carolina registered voters from February 11 to February 15. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
