North Carolina: Yet Another Poll Shows Burr’s Vulnerability

Posted June 17, 2009 at 5:56pm

Forty-nine percent of North Carolina voters believe it’s time for someone else to replace Sen. Richard Burr (R) in the Senate while just 29 percent believe Burr deserves another term, according to a new poll released Wednesday by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm based in the Tar Heel State.

The survey, which was conducted over the weekend, found that while just under half of Republicans surveyed believe Burr deserves a second term, just 34 percent of self-identified independents and 11 percent of Democrats feel the same way.

The PPP poll of 784 voters showed Burr with a 34 percent approval rating and 35 percent disapproval rating. The PPP poll had a 3.5-point margin of error.

Democrats are continuing to search for a top-tier candidate to run in 2010.
