Tillis Struggling To Win Over Base

PPP’s newest North Carolina poll finds that Cal Cunningham has a net favorability rating 31 points better than Thom Tillis’, and leads the Senate race by 8 points at 47-39.

35% of voters view Cunningham favorably to 20% who see him unfavorably, for a net +15 rating. He emerged from his primary pretty well liked by voters who had become familiar with him over the course of that campaign. Tillis has just a 28% favorability rating with 44% seeing him negatively, for a net -16 rating. He continues to have a real problem with base enthusiasm. Even among Trump voters just 49% like him to 19% who don’t and 32% have no opinion. That sort of weakness with Trump fans was a big part of what cost Kelly Ayotte reelection in New Hampshire in 2016 and hindered Joe Heck’s efforts to win the open Senate seat in Nevada that year.
