Topic: The North Carolina gubernatorial race.

Results: Democratic Lieutenant Gov. Bev Perdue 52%, Republican Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory 45%.

Analysis: Perdue just survived a bruising primary battle and McCrory is regarded as the most electable candidate Republicans could have nominated, so, if Perdue is really ahead by 7%, that's a very good sign for her. However, a different poll last week gave McCrory a 45%-39% edge. I bet the truth is somewhere in between. This should be a tight one.
