Elizabeth Dole vs. Roy Cooper

Since our last Senate match-up between Elizabeth Dole and Brad Miller, one Democrat’s name has been repeatedly mentioned to me to try the next time. So here you go…Elizabeth Dole versus Roy Cooper.

Dole 46%
Cooper 36%

In reality this is not much different than the results of the Dole versus Miller poll from last month (44%-33%), and even a poll versus Bob Etheridge three months ago. Dole is below 50% and the Democrat doesn’t pull in all the support that a Democrat should expect from rank and file Democrats, especially blacks.

Many people thought that Roy Cooper's recent publicity regarding his effective handling of the Duke lacrosse case would make him a strong candidate. That may be true, but I don't think there is anything in these results to prove that theory.
