RALEIGH — A recent poll from Differentiators Data shows Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson dominant in a series of hypothetical matchups in the upcoming 2024 race for governor. 

The survey indicated that Robinson would best former Gov. Pat McCrory by a margin of 60% – 21%. He also would defeat former U.S. Rep. Mark Walker with 58% to 7% and leads the only other rumored contender, State Treasurer Dale Folwell, with 60% to 6%. 

“Mark Robinson has spent the last two years working GOP primary voters across North Carolina and the voters have noticed,” a summary of the results read. “Here’s the bottom line: Mark Robinson spent the last two years winning the 2024 Republican primary for governor and anybody who challenges him at this point is going to be a bump on his road to the nomination.” 

The poll also floated U.S. Rep. Dan Bishop in as a candidate for Attorney General in 2024 and he would defeat the 2020 candidate, Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O’Neill, by seven points.
