Poll: Democrat Senate Incumbent Is Already Falling Behind GOP Challenger

Rasmussen finds that in swing state North Carolina, the Democrat incumbent has an uphill race to run.

Incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan trails her two leading Republican challengers in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at the 2014 U.S. Senate race in North Carolina.

A new statewide survey of Likely North Carolina Voters shows Thom Tillis, the Republican speaker of the state House of Representatives, leading Hagan by seven points – 47% to 40%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Hagan voted for Obamacare all along the way. A plurality of North Carolina residents oppose Obamacare, and a heavy majority of 76% oppose its individual mandate.
