Public Policy Polling just conducted a survey of North Carolina voters (1/4-7; 750 NC registered voters), providing Gov. Roy Cooper (D) with results of some early ballot test data. According to the PPP results, Gov. Cooper is favorably positioned against his two potential principle opponents.
Isolating former Gov. Pat McCrory (R), the man he unseated in 2016, Gov. Cooper jumps out to a close 45-41% edge. His advantage grows opposite GOP Lt. Gov. Dan Forest. In that ballot pairing, the Governor would lead 47-35%.
Mr. Cooper’s favorability index is 44:35% positive to negative. Before winning the Governor’s office, Roy Cooper won four consecutive elections as state Attorney General.
