First-term Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina has healthy leads in matchups against Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and former state Sen. Cal Cunningham, two of his potential Democratic challengers, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted Jan. 27

Burr leads Marshall 47 percent to 37 percent with 6 percent preferring another candidate and 10 percent undecided. He leads Cunningham 50 percent to 34 percent with 5 percent preferring someone else and 11 percent undecided.

While these margins have been pretty stead since last year, Rasmussen still considers Burr potentially vulnerable as it does for any incumbent polling under 50 percent.

The Rasmussen numbers are about the same as in a Public Policy Polling survey conducted Jan. 15-18.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
