Our most recent poll from Research 2000 pits Democrats Roy Cooper, the current Attorney General of North Carolina, and Richard Moore, the state's former Treasurer, against the state's senior Senator Richard Burr. As expected, Burr is going to have a tough race on his hands if Moore or Cooper runs, a scenario which would present yet another major headache for newly minted NRSC chair John Cornyn.
Research 2000 for Daily Kos. 1/5-7. Likely voters. MoE 4% (No trend lines).
Burr (R) 45
Cooper (D) 43
Burr (R) 46
Moore (D) 40
Very nice-looking numbers for the two Democrats.
