Another day, another poll. Raleigh-based American Insights, considered a right-leaning firm, released results Tuesday on voter sentiment toward N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory, including a finding that the GOP governor holds a six-point advantage over state Attorney General Roy Cooper in a prospective 2016 race.
Cooper, a Democrat, has stated his intention to run. McCrory was elected in 2012 after losing to Democrat Bev Perdue four years earlier. In a poll conducted Feb. 11-15, American Insights questioned 611 registered voters across the state and found McCrory leading 44 percent to 38 percent against Cooper.
