Since the North Carolina primary a couple of weeks ago, we've had two polls in the gubernatorial race. One gave Republican Pat McCrory a 6-point advantage. The other gave Democrat Bev Perdue a 7-point lead.
Now there's a third poll out. The tiebreaker, right?
Err, not so much. The poll gives Perdue a 43%-42% edge, which is, of course, within the margin of error. That result confirms for me that North Carolina has surpassed Washington as the Republicans' best gubernatorial pickup opportunity this year.
