RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - With one week until the election, polling shows North Carolinas closely watched Senate race tightening.
In early October, the RealClearPolitics average of polling in the race showed Democrat Cal Cunningham leading incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (R) by five to six percentage points.
Thats dropped to 1.8 points on average in the final days of the campaign.
There has been an erosion in Cunninghams numbers, said Dr. Andrew Taylor, political analyst at N.C. State University. Its hard to attribute it to much other than the scandal surrounding Cunningham.
Control of the U.S. Senate could hinge on which candidate wins in North Carolina.
Tillis campaigned Tuesday with Vice President Mike Pence, calling attention to Cunninghams affair which he apologized for earlier this month.
Im here with my girlfriend, who also happens to be my wife, Tillis told a crowd of supporters.

Wife kicked him out of the house. Bet something else is shrinking, too.
Boy I feel like an idiot. All this time I thought it was a seat that we were going to try and take away. Hopefully we hold it it looks good
If she kicked him out bet it’s cuz Cunningham’s internal polls show him losing.
What about Cooper? Any chance of deposing him?
More properly has no lead and is falling into a deeper hole than he already is!
The Pogue REMF banging a combat Sergeant’s wife? What a Jody.
Yes, his pole is falling.
Looks like President Trump will pull Tillis across the finish line!!
Of course, Cunningham’s lead is eroding AFTER 800,000+ mail-in ballots have already been sent out.
NC is odd. It looks like Trump and Tillis will win but Cooper gets to keep his mansion. To me, I can’t see how Cooper is popular due to his coronavirus restrictions. He’s not as bad as Cuomo, Newsom and Whitmer is all what I can say.
More RCP average polls. They are a waste of time.
Start the military prosecution.
As a JAG attorney, he most likely prosecuted cases like he is guilty of doing.
You know it.She will hitch her wagon to the next up and coming.
Cooper would not have won except for voter fraud in Durham.
Hes sneaky. I got concerned when Trump did not endorse Forest during his NC rallies.
POGUE REMF indeed
