A new Rasmussen poll gives Pat McCrory a comfortable double-digit lead in the governor's race.
The Republican nominee boasts a 49 percent advantage to Democrat Walter Dalton's 35 percent. Another 4 percent preferred another candidate and 12 percent were undecided, according to the survey released Wednesday.
The poll of likely voters was conducted Monday. The margin of error is plus-or-minus 4.5 percent. A recent survey from Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm, gave McCrory a smaller, seven-point lead.
