I don't have much to say today so I'll just go ahead and preview next week's polls: Michigan and North Carolina.
Michigan we'll bring you the standard updates on the Presidential race and Senate race. We'll also take another look ahead to the 2010 race for Governor, pitting Democrats Dennis Archer and John Cherry against Republicans Terri Lynn Land and Dick DeVos. Archer is the former mayor of Detroit, Cherry is the Lieutenant Governor, Land is the Secretary of State, and DeVos was the nominee in 2006. Our polling last month found Archer leading Attorney General Mike Cox and Congresswoman Candice Miller, with Cherry trailing each of them.
North Carolina we'll have new numbers on all the statewide races, as well as a look at who North Carolinians blame for corruption in politics: do they think the worst offenders are the Democrats in Raleigh, Republicans in Raleigh, Democrats in Washington, or Republicans in Washington?
The trends I'll be watching:
-Does Richard Moore's endorsement help Bev Perdue, particularly among Democrats?
-Two months in a row have shown Democrat challenger Beth Wood leading incumbent Les Merritt for Auditor, a result I find curious given the low profile nature of the job. Will that continue?
-What impact does including the Libertarian candidates for Senate and Lieutenant Governor have on those races?
That and much more early next week.
