Bev Perdue 43
Pat McCrory 39
Michael Munger 4
Perdue is out to a four point lead after the race was tied three weeks ago.
The Libertarian Party's certification and the resultant placement of Michael Munger on the ballot may be helping her cause. Last month McCrory had a solid lead among independent voters, but now Munger's pulling 15% of them and Perdue has the advantage. That's the key difference between these numbers and the ones that showed the race tied.
McCrory is still doing a better job of attracting crossover support than Perdue- he receives 18% of the Democratic vote, while she's polling at just 10% with Republicans.
There is a significant gender gap in the contest- Perdue is up 15 with women but down 9 with men. Perdue leads in every region of the state except Charlotte, where McCrory's 63-25 advantage is keeping the race close statewide.
