Libertarian Sean Haugh draws 4 percent of registered voters.
When voters were asked to choose only between Hagan and Tillis, Hagan continued to lead, 43 to 42 percent.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - With little more than 30 days to go until Election Day, the advertising for and against Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis is set to get even more intense.

The Associated Press reports that groups backing Republicans have booked $6.8 million in TV time, with the Karl Rove-associated group Crossroads GPS booking $5 million of the total. 
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Senate Majority PAC -- both backing Democrats -- have reserved $11.8 million in TV time.
The money is just one piece of $80 million set aside in key Senate races across the country.
Republicans must pick up six seats to win control of the U.S. Senate. Kay Hagan's North Carolina seat is one of the key seats that could turn the chamber to Republicans or keep it in the hands of Democrats.
