The poll finds 49.6 percent of poll-takers likely to vote for McCrory, while 33.3 percent of poll-takers are likely to vote for Dalton. Undecided respondents, or those expressing a preference for another candidate in the governor’s race, make up 17.1 percent of those participating in the poll.

The poll, conducted October 6 - October 8, surveyed 1,325 likely North Carolina voters. Poll-takers identifying as Democrat made up 41.8 percent of the polling group, Republican-identifying poll-takers made up 31.8 percent of the polling group, and 26.3 percent of poll-takers indicated no party affiliation or affiliation with another party.
