Skip to comments.Election 2012: North Carolina President North Carolina: Romney 51%, Obama 43%
Posted on 05/16/2012 5:43:50 AM PDT by icwhatudo
Mitt Romney has moved out to an eight-point lead over President Obama in North Carolina after the two men were virtually tied a month ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State shows the putative Republican nominee earning 51% of the vote to Obamas 43%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
Thats a big change from last month when Romney posted a narrow 46% to 44% lead over the president in Rasmussen Reports first survey of the race in North Carolina. Democrats have signaled North Carolinas importance as a key swing state by deciding to hold their national convention in Charlotte this summer.

If 0bama is “primaried”, this will likely break the 90+% hold on the “black vote” that the ‘rats have depended on.
Getting that block to vote nearer the levels of the general voting population, along with voter ID, will put the ‘rats out of power for the foreseeable future.
Like said, Don’t know, but sensing something in the air. It could be own nose. Just don’t know.
2010 was the warm up for whats coming.
I wonder what a Romney presidency will bring...oh well, I know what another 4 years of an Obama presidency will bring.
The Military and Supreme Court cannot take 4 more years of Obama.
Eric Holder needs to be banished from whence he came.
So disgusted with Obama-I cringe when I hear his voice or see his photo, or he appears on TV."
Join the crowd, I don't know any freeper who had Romney as their first choice (or second or third or...) but a few seem to like this idea:
The recent tea party primary winners that upset the GOPe candidates will help hold Romneys feet to the fire.
I really can’t stand to see or listen to Obama. I can take about 30 seconds, then my blood pressure rises and I just have to change the channel. I literally won’t be able to survive four more years of Obama.
Just as I thought.
The SECOND I heard that Obama had come out of the closet.. I immediately thought he just lost North Carolina and Virginia and probably the election.
Obama is making Carter look like a genius.
Rasmussen leans slightly Republican as a pollster, but not 9 points worth. Obama HAS to A) Start a war with Iran, B) Stop the election, or C) Commit voter fraud on an unprecedented level.
The Scott Walker effect?
This is excellent news!!!
War on Women, the dog stuff, the Mitt bullying story, randomly going after his wife, none of their attempts at framing the debate seem to be working.
I think people vote with their pocket books at the end of the day.
I also think Mitt’s blandness may be helping him. He really does come off as generic Republican canidate.
The MSM will compare every future Pres to Obama and clense his record in the process.
So no, we'll never hear the end of the liberal messiah.
And 2000 years from now they'll find Obama' stone tablets.
It is, considering:
1. Obama won it in 2008,
2. Blacks' opposition to homo "marriage" bolstered that 61% number, and
3. The lion's share of the undecided will flow to the challenger.
If the Recall of Scott Walker, in WI, fails on June 5th, I guarantee you that it will deflate the Dem voter turn-out on November 6th. Depression does strange things to people. I expect Obama to lose Wisconsin.
What are the chances the Dems will boot Obama for Hillary before their Convention?
I just don’t get this freeper meme that says if we had another candidate we would be up 65 to 35 over obama, instead of the 2 or 3 points Romney is up now.
Romney already thumped Newt and Santorum among Republicans, and it goes against all logic and common sense to say Newt or Santorum would be doing better with independents or conservative democrats than Romney is right now.
This 65 to 35 meme to me just sounds like sour grapes coming from freepers who still can’t get over the fact their guy or woman lost in the primaries.
Besides there is way too many minorities, gays, socialists wanna bees, and far left liberals that automatic rat votes for ANY republican to win 65% of the vote. The current demographics of this country just wont allow it.
There is not going to be any brokered convention. No 3rd party candidate is going to get more votes than Obama. The reality is republicans have one choice if they want to beat Obama and thats Romney.
I know some freepers feel that we would be better off with 4 more years of obama than Romney. Well if thats you and if you feel like we would be better off with Obama stacking the supreme court with 2 or 3 more radical libs than by all means help obama defeat Romney, but dont give me the other meme that Romney would appoint libs judges just like Obama. Romney might not be a solid ultra conservative but he certainly is not some far left lib either.
Yeah sure Romney said and did some fairly non-conservative things while gov. of the peoples republic of massachusetts, but afterall that is probably the most socialist liberal state in the country even moire so that california, so if he didnt put on a moderate face their he would never have come close to being elected gov. there, and mass would have been stuck with a ultra lib gov instead of a moderate one.
Romney is not going to nominate lib judges to the supreme court because the state of mass will not be the people he has to answer to. the people he has to answer to will be the conservatives, so he will want to keep conservatives happy by appointing conservative judges. Just like obama will want to keep libs happy by appointing lib judges, and throw in the fact obama will have 4 years of not having to worry about what the country thinks. we will have a 4 year non stop episode of socialists and gays gone wild.
I also hear some freepers say it doesnt matter if romney appoints the right judges or enacts the right policies because he wont be doing it because it’s whats in his heart, he will only be doing it because he knows he has to pacify conservatives to get relected in 2016. Well who cares why he does it ????? As long as romney did the right things I could care less if he is doing it with a pure heart or a oppurtunists heart. the bottom line is he would be doing the right things which is much more than what you can say for what obama would do. i swear some freepers act like their romneys wife or girlfriend with all this pure of heart stuff.
My message to freepers is keep your eye on the ball and remember whats really important and thats beating obama.
I really cant stand to see or listen to Obama.
Same here. The very sight of him or the sound of his voice makes me ill.
I heard a lot of people say that if Obama doesn’t win North Carolina, then he can’t win re-election. “The won” will be “the loser”. or “Won and done”
