Are suburbanites the key to victory in the U.S. Senate race?
Public Policy Polling says its latest survey shows that Democratic challenger Kay Hagan is piling up big numbers among suburban voters in her race against Republican incumbent Elizabeth Dole. PPP says that is part of the reason that Hagan is ahead, 49-42, in their latest poll.
PPP surveyed 1,200 likely voters on Oct. 18-19. The survey's margin of error was plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
PPP officials said that Hagan is "annihilating" Dole among suburban voters, 54-36.
