Under the Dome reports on the first poll of the 2010 Senate race, which pits incumbent Burr against -- you guessed it -- Coop! The result is pretty good:
"The poll shows a competitive race, with Cooper leading Burr by five points, 39 to 34 percent. It also shows Burr with a 32 percent approval rating, compared to Cooper's 44 percent approval.
'If Attorney General Roy Cooper decides to run for the Senate in 2010, you can put Richard Burr's name right to the top of the list of endangered incumbents nationally,' writes pollster Tom Jensen."
