Clinton gains on Trump in N.C. while Senate race with Burr and Ross remains tight
Posted October 17, 2016
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has solidified her lead in North Carolina over Republican Donald Trump -- leading 50% to 48% among likely voters and 52%-44% among registered voters, according to a statewide survey by CNN release Monday. That's a jump for Clinton since August when she led Trump 48%-47% among likely voters and 48%-46% among registered voters.
In a reflection of the closeness of the North Carolina race for the U.S. Senate, Democrat Deborah Ross leads Republican incumbent Richard Burr 49%-46% among registered voters, while Burr leads Ross 48%-47% among likely voters.
