RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A new general election poll of North Carolina's U.S. Senate race shows the third candidate in the race, Libertarian Sean Haugh, is pulling 11 percent of the vote.

 
Public Policy Polling (PPP) data shows Democrat Kay Hagan with 38 percent of the vote and Republican Thom Tillis with 36 percent.
 
"Haugh's surprising support is likely the function of voters being pretty down on both of the major party candidates," writes PPP in its analysis of the data.
 
"Hagan has a 38/49 approval spread, pretty consistent with where her numbers have been since Republicans began running attack ads on her last fall. Tillis is at a 30/46 favorability spread, including only 51/23 with GOP voters. Despite his outright win last week some folks within his own party continue to be disaffected with him and are leaning toward voting Libertarian at least for now."
