North Carolina poll shows Cunningham up 4 points despite scandal

Source: Politico

North Carolina Democratic Senate hopeful Cal Cunningham leads Sen. Thom Tillis by 4 percentage points in a poll released Wednesday despite being dogged by scathing press coverage for nearly two weeks after his marital infidelity surfaced.

Cunningham thus far appears politically unharmed by the scandal, leading Tillis 41 percent to 37 percent among likely voters in a New York Times/Siena College poll released Wednesday. The poll’s margin of error was plus-or-minus 4.5 percentage points.

Other public polls have similarly found that North Carolina voters are not punishing Cunningham for his indiscretions the way they have politicians in the past. A Monmouth University poll out Tuesday showed that Cunningham’s favorability suffered in light of his extramarital affair — but that his lead over Tillis had grown compared the pollster’s previous survey prior to the scandal emerging.


Cunningham also saw his public perception sink underwater in Wednesday’s Times/Siena poll — with only 40 percent of respondents viewing him favorably compared to 42 percent unfavorably, down from 46 percent to 29 percent a month ago.
