Ross Has Advantage Over Incumbent Burr In New North Carolina Senate Poll


Democrat Deborah Ross holds a four-point advantage over incumbent Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) in a new poll of the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina from Siena College/New York Times Upshot.

The poll shows Ross, a former state legislator, ahead 46-42 among likely voters in the state.

While the pollster has not previously polled the U.S. Senate election in North Carolina, a Fox News poll released yesterday showed Burr ahead by six points, 43-37.

The Siena College/NYT Upshot poll was conducted via live telephone interview from Sept. 16-19 among 782 likely North Carolina voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average in the North Carolina Senate race shows a tossup, with Burr leading Ross, 42.2 to 41.8.
