N.C. State politics prof Andy Taylor: Perdue win
Democratic consultant Gary Pearce: Perdue win
Congressional Quarterly: Leans Democrat
Cook Political Report: "Toss-up"
Rothenberg Political Report: "Toss-up"
MSNBC's Chuck Todd: "Nailbiter"
Washington Post: "Third Most Likely to Switch Parties"
N.C. consultant John Davis: McCrory win
UNC-Chapel Hill prof Leroy Towns: McCrory win
