Here's the release. I'm on the GQR press list and didn't get this since it was done for DCCC. I hope Dtrip will release the cross tabs. I'll get whatever else I can to you as soon as I get it.
Robin Hayes has gone extremely nasty. I knew something was up.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a new Greenberg, Quinlan, Rosner poll today conducted September 28-29 that shows Larry Kissell leading Representative Robin Hayes by 11 points in the race for North Carolina's 8th congressional District. The initial head to head between Democrat Larry Kissell and Republican Robin Hayes is 54% to 43%. The poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a 4.9% margin of error.
The 8th Congressional District shows a strong Democratic lean, with Barack Obama leading John McCain by 12 points (54%-42%) and Democratic Senate Candidate Kay Hagan leading Elizabeth Dole by 14 points (55%-41%). 8th District voters also believe that Larry Kissell will do a better job on the economy than Robin Hayes and that Kissell is more likely to stand up for North Carolina's workers.
"This poll shows that Larry Kissell is continuing to connect with voters in the district and that North Carolinans know he shares their concerns," said Kyra Jennings, Southern Regional Press Secretary at the DCCC. "While Robin Hayes has stood with President Bush to cast the deciding votes on unfair trade deals such as CAFTA and sent jobs overseas, voters know that Larry Kissell will always stand up for them."
