The survey of 400 registered North Carolina voters in Etheridge’s district found his Republican opponent, Renee Ellmers, leading 39 percent to 38 percent. Those are remarkable numbers given the dynamics of the district. Democrats outnumber Republicans two-to-one in voter registration, and Etheridge won re-election in 2008 by a hefty 67 percent.
Since the Etheridge attack video went viral, Ellmers has seen a rush of campaign donations. That, mixed with the positive poll, should give Democratic strategists pause. Will it be enough to put her over the top? It’s doubtful.
