Richard Burr Maintains Double-Digit Lead Over Elaine Marshall

Another Poll, Same Result: Richard Burr With Big Lead Over Elaine Marshall

Republican Sen. Richard Burr has a 13 point lead over Democratic challenger Elaine Marshall, according to a new survey.

Burr is leading with 49 percent followed by Marshall with 36 percent, and Libertarian candidate Michael Beitler at 4 percent, according to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning firm based in Raleigh.

The poll found that Burr has solidified his support among Republicans and is doing well among independent voters. Marshall, who has not yet been able to advertise on television, is still not very well known.

The survey of 681 likely voters was taken Sept. 23-26 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percent.
