OnPoint Polling and Research yesterday released the latest numbers from our NC-11 campaign between Charles Taylor and Heath Shuler. The numbers reflect an electorate that, despite having voted for Taylor again and again, has grown increasingly tired of his ethical lapses and poor leadership. From the poll:
"...likely voters in North Carolina's Eleventh Congressional District favor Democratic challenger Heath Shuler over Republican incumbent Charles Taylor by 5 percentage points. Shuler leads 48% to 43%. With leaners, Shuler's lead is 50% to 46%."
In looking more closely at the data, it's clear that the sample is skewed away from the 18-29 year old age group. Since this age group is the most likely to be dissatisfied with the current Republican leadership, it leads me to believe that a big turnout among young voters could change this election from a squeaker to a blowout.
Do something. If you don't, then you're just begging for two more years of Charles Taylor and a Republican majority in Congress.
