Burr Up Big in North Carolina

Republican Richard Burr is leading in the race to keep his Senate seat in North Carolina against challenger Elaine Marshall. According to the newest Rasmussen poll, Burr appears to be pulling away from his opponent, who thought she could cash in after Republican Elizabeth Dole was knocked out in the freak 2008 election.

Burr* (R): 49%
Marshall (D): 40%
Other/und: 11%
*-- denotes incumbent

It is notable that Burr does not poll over 50%, which is a potentially bad sign. However, considering that undecided voters tend to break against the incumbent 2-1, Burr still winds up with about 54% to Marshall's 46%-- a relatively comfortable number for reelection and better than his 52%-47% win in 2004 against Democrat Erskine Bowles.

To think that Senator Burr cannot win in North Carolina is to be an individual without proper thought or perspective.
