The race to succeed Governor Roy Cooper in North Carolina appears to be just as competitive as Biden and Trump’s contentious battle for the White House. North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, the Republican nominee, and state Attorney General Josh Stein, come within the margin of error in most of the recent polls.

Earlier this week, North Star Opinion Research’s latest poll results showed Robinson leading Stein with 44% of the vote to Stein’s 42%, and the remaining 14% undecided. Two weeks ago, the left-leaning Change Research poll showed Stein leading Robinson by one point, 44% to 43%, with 9% responding “unsure” and four percent of the 835 voters polled responding that they would not vote. Considering the narrow margins, voter dissatisfaction could be the pivotal factor in the gubernatorial election’s outcome. If the Democratic Party is more successful with its get-out-the-vote effort in 2024, those extra voters could help Biden overcome the deficit that prevented him from capturing the Tar Heel State in 2020.

For the past eight years, Democrat Roy Cooper, a moderate Democrat, governed among that may serve as the ultimate example of the nation’s intensifying polarization, particularly between urban metro areas vs. suburban and rural sectors of the state.

North Carolina’s Democratic Party won offices of governor, secretary of state, and attorney general, but the Republican Party controls both chambers of the state legislature.
