Posted on 01/27/2014 7:03:29 PM PST by SMGFan
North Carolina Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan is trailing her two leading Republican opponents by as much as 7 percentage points, says a poll published Monday by Rasmussen Reports.
Likely voters surveyed show that Thom Tillis, Republican speaker of the state House of Representatives, has gained the biggest lead over Hagan, 47 percent to 40 percent.
Tea party activist Greg Brannon is ahead of Hagan by 4 points, 43 percent to 39 percent.

Yes it does need to flip hopefully with Brannon.
Yeah. I’m going to move this one to ‘lean Republican’ based on the consistent polling. Hope Brannon wins.
I wouldn’t say that the speaker of a state house of representatives is a “nobody”; RINO, yes, but “nobody”, no.
Fear not: Moocheele will campaign for her in state
Unless he runs in statewide elections for governor, lieutenant governor, comptroller, AG or senator, he's a nobody in the sense that nobody outside of his district has ever heard of him.
I’m still waiting for a response from my letter to her in October 2013 about my family health insurance policy being cancelled for not being Obamacare compliant. Apparently responding to constituent issues is not at the top of her priority list.
Kay is a tool of Senator Chuck Schumer of New York who as head of the DNC Senate election committee poured out of state money into her first campaign for Senate. She chose to do the bidding of Harry Reid and Schumer instead of represent the interests of the people of North Carolina. If she is lucky her progressive buddies will give her a made up position at Harvard like they did our recent Democrat Governor Bev Perdue.
This seat has already turned twice since Senator Helms retired and later died. It’s too bad he didn’t have a reliable replacement waiting in the wings.
The challenge is the MSM will launch a massive assault.
With only 33 Senate seats up in any one year and maybe a dozen of them competitive, the journ-0-lists can devote tremendous resources to each race.
Only the best candidates can survive that.
Hope they are prepped.
That’s a big reason Tea Party candidates can do ok in the House races but have struggled for the Senate.
They do well in right wing suburban districts, but that advantage is somewhat nullified by the addition of black voters and liberal and moderate whites from the big cities in statewide races. Until whites vote as a bloc for the GOP, statewide races won't ever be a walk, especially given the influx of American-born or naturalized Hispanics who are increasingly reaching adulthood and voting like blacks because of Nixon's preferential ethnic quotas.
Whites will never vote as a bloc.
Far too many are members of the entitlement army.
