Democrat challenger Deborah Ross leads Richard Burr (R-NC) by one point in the latest CBS/YouGov poll of North Carolina likely voters released Tuesday.
The Senate seat in North Carolina is an important one in the Democrats’ efforts to regain the majority.
Burr, a two-term incumbent, has mostly led Ross, a former state legislator, in the polls, although in August, Ross begun to close the gap.
The CBS/YouGov poll was conducted Aug. 30 – Sept. 2 online among 1,088 likely voters in North Carolina, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
TPM’s PollTracker Average for the race shows Burr up 0.8 percent against Ross, 40.5 to 39.7 percent.
