Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied in North Carolina, and that's the good news for Republicans, according to the latest New York Times Upshot/Siena College poll.

Republican Gov. Pat McCrory trails by 8 points, and incumbent Sen. Richard Burr trails in his reelection bid by 4 points

The latest results in this key battleground state, is not only for the presidency but also for a GOP Senate majority:

  • Clinton: 41 percent;
  • Trump: 41 percent;
  • Other: 18 percent.
  • Deborah Ross: 46 percent;
  • Burr: 42 percent.
  • Roy Cooper: 50 percent;
  • McCrory: 42 percent.

Crushing the Republicans in each race is educated white voters, a group that Mitt Romney won in 2012 by nearly 30 points, the Times reported.

Trump leads among white voters, 53 percent to 28 percent, but Clinton is competitive around Raleigh and Charlotte, areas Romney won by 20 points four years ago, the Times reported.

Further, Clinton leads among educated white voters born outside of North Carolina, 43 percent to 33 percent.

Trump leads among whites without a college degree, 66 percent to 17 percent. However, McCrory and Burr do not garner the same level of support from that demographic, according to the Times.

Clinton leads among black voters, 86 percent to 3 percent in a state that sports a robust black turnout to vote, the Times reported.

The New York Times Upshot/Siena College poll of 782 likely voters in North Carolina was conducted from Sept. 16 to 19.
