A new Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy survey for the Valley News Service (6/13-15; 625 ND registered voters via live interview) finds at-large Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-Bismarck) leading first-term Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D) 48-44% on the statewide count.
Sen. Heitkamp has an advantage in the eastern part of the state, 47-44%, and runs up her score in the city of Fargo and Cass County. There, the Senator holds a substantial 54-35% margin. But, Congressman Cramer more than compensates for his deficit in the central and western sectors of North Dakota. He dominates in his home region in and around Bismarck, where he posts a 56-37% mark. In the western sector, he records a commensurate support level, 57-38%.
