Beth Wood (D) 44
Leslie Merritt (R) 41
Wood has led every single poll in this race, but this is the closest the margin has been as the better funded Merritt is able to run a more visible campaign.
Secretary of State:
Elaine Marshall (D) 48
Jack Sawyer (R) 39
Marshall has led by a good amount in every poll of this race.
Steve Troxler (R) 46
Ronnie Ansley (D) 41
Troxler is holding on in this Democratic year thanks in no small part to his carrying 20% of the Democratic vote.
A note on the Council of State Races:
We realized if we polled every one of them on our final North Carolina poll next weekend it would be way too long. So we decided not to poll any race where there hasn't been a poll showing it within five points at least in the last couple months. Congratulations to June Atkinson, Roy Cooper, and Elaine Marshall on their inevitable reelections.
