Yesterday, I discussed the Elon College Poll of the NC-11 race.  Today, I turn to the NC-08 race.  

The Eighth District, as many of you know, is the only District in the south with a majority of registered Democrats where a Republican holds the seat.  There are roughly 51% Democrats, 38% Republicans, and the rest are independent.

So far in our "early vote", we have seen:

16525    Total voters
5305    0.321028744  Republicans
9107    0.551104387  Democrats

Historically, they have outvoted us 2 to 1 during early vote, but that isn't happening this year.

The poll is interesting.  Notably, more people have a negative opinion of their current Congressman than they do of challenger Larry Kissell, despite literally millions of dollars in negative advertising over the last few weeks.  RT Strategies had this race at 48-44, in Kissell's favor.  The negative ads haven't budged Hayes from his 44.

Please  help answer these outrageous and shameful attacks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
