Council of State Races


Beth Wood (D) 42
Leslie Merritt (R) 36

This is the fifth poll in a row that has Wood in the lead, but it's also a good deal closer than it was in late August when we polled this race. Has Merritt been spending some money I'm not aware of?

Secretary of State:

Elaine Marshall (D) 47
Jack Sawyer (R) 35

Nothing to see here.

Agriculture Commissioner:

Steve Troxler (R) 41
Ronnie Ansley (D) 39

Troxler is probably the Republican Council of State member most likely to survive if there really ends up being a Democratic sweep, but this poll shows that things are getting tougher for him as voters move toward Barack Obama and Kay Hagan.

Full results here.

The auditor race shows people are starting to pay attention to the qualifications of the individual candidates and not just to the "R" or "D" next to the name. Merritt has done a good job and the auditor's job should have nothing to do with partisanship.
