Cardinal Point Analytics poll shows Trump, Tillis, Forest ahead
Published July 31, 2020
Cardinal Point Analytics has released its second North Carolina statewide poll and has found that President Donald Trump’s lead has widened over challenger and former Vice President Joe Biden. Last week, Trump-Biden was 48.6% to 47.7%, but this week, Trump is ahead 48.4% to 46.8%. President Trump continues to do well with younger and middle-aged voters as well as with Democrats and Non-Partisan voters.
US Senator Thom Tillis and Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham are in a statistical tie with Tillis edging out Cunningham 43.1% to 42.9%. There are more undecided voters in the US Senate race at 11.1%, which further adds to the “toss-up” status. Tillis has less Republican-base support than any other race surveyed this week.
Lt. Governor Dan Forest’s numbers have improved since last week and is now in a tie with incumbent Governor Roy Cooper. Forest now stands at 46.4% to Cooper’s 46.1%. There are still approximately 6% undecided, same as last week. Forest has the highest support among Republicans of any other candidate.
Cardinal Point’s voter preference survey was conducted between July 22–24, 2020, of approximately 735 likely North Carolina voters with a 3.6 percentage point margin of error at a 95% confidence level.
