NC-SEN: Cunningham widens lead over Tillis after news of affair

Cal Cunningham has widened his lead over Sen. Thom Tillis (R) in North Carolina's marquee Senate race after revelations over an extramarital affair threatened to derail the Democrat's candidacy.

Cunningham led Tillis, who is running for a second term, by a 48 to 44 percent margin among registered voters in a new Monmouth University poll released Tuesday. The former state senatorís lead grows to 5 points among likely voters in a high-turnout scenario, 49 to 44 percent, while his lead shrinks to 1 point, 48 to 47 percent, in a low-turnout scenario.

Despite the news of Cunninghamís affair, the Democratís lead grew from the same poll from September, which was released before the scandal hit and showed Cunningham with a slimmer 1-point lead over Tillis among registered voters.

The survey suggests the Senate race will closely match the results of the presidential race, with Democratic nominee Joe Biden leading President Trump by anywhere from 1 to 4 points, depending on the turnout model.

The poll is a boon for Cunningham, who is married. Texts revealed he exchanged messages of a sexual nature with a married woman, Arlene Guzman Todd, a public relations strategist from California. Todd later confirmed the two had had an affair.
