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.
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.
