The race to fill retiring Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr's North Carolina seat is close to a tie, three polls found in recent days.

In a Civitas Poll, 44% of respondents said that if the election were to happen today, they would vote for former North Carolina state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley.

The same poll shows that 43.7% would vote for Rep. Ted Budd, R-N.C., a Trump-endorsed candidate.

The North Carolina Senate race is one of the most competitive races in the country. The Senate's control is currently tight, with Democrats controlling 50 seats and Republicans holding 50. Either way, a seat gained or lost could significantly affect who controls the Senate.

The survey took place on Sept. 24, with 650 likely general election voters.

It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.79%. Survey participants were interviewed by phone and SMS.
