Although the end result of the WRAL/Rasmussen poll on the race for Governor seemed perfectly reasonable, one thing within the crosstabs did not. The survey found a reverse gender gap, with Bev Perdue leading among men and Pat McCrory leading among women.
That's quite a different story than our recent polling on the race has found. In our most recent survey Perdue led by 15 points among women and McCrory led by 9 with men. The time before that Perdue had a 12 point lead with women while McCrory had a 15 point edge with men.
I am pretty sure this race will see the typical gender gap and not this strange inverse one that Rasmussen found in its most recent poll.
