Here are the results of the final round of polling from SurveyUSA going into today's gubernatorial primaries in North Carolina and Indiana.
Lieutenant Gov. Bev Perdue 52%, State Treasurer Richard Moore, 33%
Moore ran hard-hitting ads against Perdue, which appear to have backfired. Perdue takes 62% of the black vote in the poll, even though Moore claimed she was soft on hate groups like the KKK.
Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory 38%, State Senator Fred Smith 32%
These results are close to another recent poll, which gave McCrory a 39%-35% lead. The reason McCrory and Smith can't break 40% in these polls is that there are a couple of other candidates on the ballot. That's significant because if no one gets to 40%, the top two candidates will end up in a runoff. But, when undecided voters finally decide today, the top vote-getter (most likely McCrory) will probably win the nomination outright.
Former Congresswoman Jill Long Thompson 43%, Architect Jim Schellinger 41%
With a whopping 16% undecided, it's still anyone's guess who the Democrats will nominate to take on Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels. If women show up in big numbers to support HIllary Clinton, that could give Long Thompson the edge. SurveyUSA's poll showed a small gender gap in Long Thompson's favor.
