Civitas Insitute Poll: Hagan Leads Tillis 42-36
Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan is still expected to remain in office in the latest poll by The Civitas Institute based in Raleigh.
In a live-caller poll of 600 registered North Carolina voters, 42 percent favored Hagan over 36 percent of voters predicting Republican challenger and N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis’ victory.
Nine percent of voters selected Libertarian candidate Sean Haugh, but when asked only to choose the top two candidates, Hagan received 47 percent while 43 percent selected Tillis.
This poll was conducted on June 18, 19 and 22 and follows another poll done by Public Policy Polling, also showing Hagan’s lead over the Republican candidate.
