WASHINGTON, DC (WECT) – Sen. Kay Hagan's run for re-election has drawn closer, according to a new survey done by Public Policy Polling.

The firm polled more than 700 North Carolina voters from November 8-11, including 498 Republican voters. The results show Hagan virtually tied with most GOP challengers for her seat in the U.S. Senate.  Hagan leads NC House Speaker Thom Tillis 44-42%, Mark Harris 43-41% and Heather Grant 43-40% in the new poll, and actually trails Greg Brannon 44-43%.

While the poll has Hagan's approval rating essentially the same from September at 44%, her disapproval rating soared from 39% in September to 49% in October. According to PPP, a similar decline shows up with President Obama's popularity in that same time frame, with his approval at 43% and disapproval at 53%.

In the GOP race for the nomination to oppose Hagan, Tillis has opened a bit of a lead on the other primary challengers. When given the option on the four candidates for the nomination, Tillis led with 20%, followed by Harris at 14%, Brannon at 11% and Grant at 8%. A whopping 47% said they are not sure, leaving the candidates with a big populous to win over before May.
