RALEIGH, NC (WECT) – Greg Brannon and Mark Harris showed improved numbers while Thom Tillis saw his support slip in the final Public Policy Polling survey of the North Carolina Republican Senate primary campaigns.

In a PPP poll done April 26-28, Tillis had support from 46 percent of the responders, with Brannon at 20 percent and Harris at 11 percent. In the final poll done over the May 3-4 weekend, Tillis had the support of 40 percent, with Brannon up to 28 percent and Harris at 15 percent. The 40 percent mark would keep Tillis at the level he needs to secure the nomination without having to go through a July runoff election.

According to a news release sent with the PPP data, Brannon and Harris saw increases as voters report having seen more from their campaigns. Both men had an 8-9 point increase in the percentage that have seen their TV ads.

The PPP survey also found that negative ads against Tillis seemed to have an impact on his favorability rating, which decreased 9 points overall from a 56 favorable/24 unfavorable rating in April to 52 favorable/29 unfavorable in May.
