Polling the Democratic primary...

...for the NC House. I got a chuckle out of this today. A Democratic candidate for the NC House of Representatives had a professional poll conducted in his district. It showed him with a whopping 10% lead over his intra-party rival. Chris Mintz wasted no time in declaring his seizing of the momentum in the race. The poll showed him holding a 21%-11% lead over his opponent, Ty Harrell. About 68% of likely Democratic voters polled as undecided. I'm sorry, this gives me no confidence in improved governance in Raleigh. At the legislative level, these guys need to get out and press the flesh. That's the only poll they need. BTW, the winner of the Mintz/Harrell clash will take on five-term GOP incumbent J. Russell Capps.
