Kay Hagan 51
Elizabeth Dole 44
Christopher Cole 3
Elizabeth Dole's 'Godless Americans' ad has clearly blown up in her face, as Kay Hagan has now expanded her lead to seven points.
The ad may have helped Hagan to get Democrats unified around her, as that's where most of the movement in the last week has come. Where Hagan led only 76-18 within her party a week ago, those numbers have now improved to 83-14. The excess nastiness of the ad may have lost Dole any reputation she might have had as a moderate or bipartisan type, causing her to lose a decent portion of her crossover support.
Hagan is up 56-41 with those who have already voted. She first took the lead in PPP's polling of the race in late August and never lost it.
