Public Policy Polling on Guv Rematch: McCrory Beats Perdue, 49-37

The latest survey results from Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling show former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory easily beating Gov. Beverly Perdue were the race for governor held today. The governor continues to have problems within her own party and is in serious trouble with independents.

Perdue continues to lag a good bit when tested in a hypothetical rematch with 2008 foe Pat McCrory. The former Charlotte mayor’s lead is back up to 49-37 this month. The biggest problem for Perdue here is once again her party base- while McCrory has 84% of Republicans locked up, only 64% of Democrats are committing to Perdue right now. She probably needs that number to be up closer to 80% to win reelection. Independents continue to lean toward McCrory as well by a 44-29 margin.
