Republican Tracking Poll: Governor

Pat McCrory 26
Fred Smith 23
Bill Graham 14
Bob Orr 6
Elbie Powers 1

It's becoming increasingly clear this is going to be a two person race between McCrory and Smith. A runoff is looking more and more likely as well. If the undecideds break in the same proportions as the decided voters it would give McCrory a 37-33 lead, short of the 40% needed for the nomination.

McCrory continues to do well largely on the strength of his Charlotte base, where he leads Smith 67-7. Smith leads every other region of the state by margins ranging from 3 points in the Mountains to 28 points in northeastern North Carolina.

There's not much here to provide hope for Graham or Orr. They're pretty much treading water in the polls while McCrory and Smith's levels of support increase.

Seems as though if someone could break in to that 67% that McCrory has in the Charlotte region that would open the door to Fred Smith or possibly Bill Graham.
