McCrory Leads Dalton By Double Digits in New Poll

September 4, 2012

Former GOP Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory holds a significant lead over Democratic Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton in North Carolina's gubernatorial race, according to a new poll released Monday.

The survey, conducted by Elon University for the Charlotte Observer and the Raleigh News & Observer, shows McCrory leading Dalton, 52 percent to 37 percent. Ten percent remain undecided.

The results come as Democrats gather in Charlotte, North Carolina for the Democratic National Convention, where Dalton has a speaking role -- as does North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue, who opted against a reelection bid.

McCrory has consistently led Dalton, to varying degrees, in polls conducted on the race.

The poll also shows Mitt Romney leading President Obama, but the White House race is much closer than the gubernatorial contest: The former Massachusetts governor has 47 percent support to the president's 43 percent.

The Elon poll was conducted from August 25-30, and surveyed 1,089 likely voters for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.
