RALEIGH, North Carolina: A new poll from a conservative organization in North Carolina shows Republican candidate Pat McCrory in front of Democratic candidate Walter Dalton for the race for Governor of North Carolina.[1]

Conducted by the National Research Inc, the poll was commissioned by the Civitas Institute and has McCrory at 49 percent while Dalton has 38 percent. Those results are similar to polls by the same organization from earlier in 2012. Barbara Howe (L) received 2 percent while about 9 percent responded undecided. The poll’s margin of error is plus-or-minus 4 percent.
