Republican Ted Bud’s lead continues to grow in North Carolina’s Senate race.

According to the latest Emerson poll Wednesday, Democrat candidate Cheri Beasley trails Budd (R-N.C) by five points, with only 45% support.

Favorability ratings are playing a big role in the race. Budd has a net positive favorability of 13-points while Beasley is underwater by two.

This comes after earlier polling showed the potential for a toss-up race.
