PPP to Roy Cooper: You'd beat Burr (if the 2010 election were held today)

Posted by on Wed, Dec 10, 2008 at 3:36 PM

Will Attorney General Roy Cooper, a Democrat, take the plunge in the '10 race against U.S. Senator Richard Burr, R-NC? Dean Debnam, Public Policy Polling's president, clearly thinks he oughta. Not to be a pushy PPP president, but he did take a poll. It gives Cooper a 5-point edge. Today.

Says Debnam, in a press release:

In their potential head to head, Burr and Cooper perform almost equally well within their

own parties. Any time a Democrat can do that in North Carolina, he or she is going to

win a statewide race due to the state’s significant Democratic identification advantage.

“This poll confirms what many people already thought: Roy Cooper is the strongest

potential Democratic opponent for Richard Burr in 2010," said Dean Debnam, President

of Public Policy Polling. “He is just as well known statewide as the incumbent Senator,

and better liked. He would be quite a formidable candidate.”
