With the tracking poll moving to a weekly format we're going to be adding an extra question or two onto the basic horse race stuff every time to keep it interesting. Our most recent survey showed some interesting stuff about who is seeing Bev Perdue and Richard Moore's tv ads. Next week we're going to ask about the impact an Edwards endorsement would have on voters in the North Carolina Presidential primary.
Media folks, campaign folks, interested readers, whoever should feel free to make suggestions to me about things you'd like to see data on and I'll see what I can do about adding your question to our poll one of these weeks.
One other note on our next poll- we are changing our universe from folks who voted in the 2004 or 2006 primaries to folks who voted in the 2004 primary, 2006 primary, or 2006 general. That's who we called for our very accurate Democratic polls in Wisconsin, Texas, and Ohio. Given that it's clear now we will have a high intensity primary in North Carolina as well it seems like the time is right to make that change here.
I have no idea what impact it will have on all the races but I guess we'll find out soon enough.
