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.

Let’s just hope this trend keeps snowballing into a full scale avalanche of ‘real hope and change.’
I don’t think Obama got any votes in NC by embracing homosexual marriage. I don’t like Romney at all, but I really, really, really hate Obama.
A primadonna co-worker of mine from North Carolina was bitching last night about how he was going to leave the state because of the marriage vote. He’s straight and attends church but believes gays should be able to get married, well, except for in church.
I never cease to be amazed by idiots who can’t articulate or defend their own opinion.
LOL OMG this is bad news for no drama Obama!
Romney’s got my vote here in MO... while I am not enthused about voting for Romney, I’m stoked about kicking the first gay president out...
If the GOP had a useful candidate, these vote margins would be more like 65 to 35. That is what galls me to no end. We are probably going to have a done to the last illegal vote night or week to determine who won when it should have been a shut out.
Meanwhile, why the Odope is dropping in the polls, our distinguished losers in the house and senate have agreed to have a non partisan meeting with him over the budget. Give me a break, they need throw him a lifeline now? Let him sink in his own cesspool of narcism and folly. Nope, the crier and the ten pin will go up there and tacitly admit they have been obstructing his grand plans and for that they are sorry. They never learn...this is just like Ryan being invited to be present when his lordship gave that college address and proceeded to undress him in public. Of course, for most of the GOP leadership if a squirll ran up one pants leg and came down the other, the squirill would not find any nuts.
Make sure you provide him a list of the other 31 states who have enacted the same policy at the polls. He has a pretty limited number of options if he chooses to move.
That’s more like it, my adopted home state! I always knew it was an extreme case, and it was only 12,000 votes.
Reaal Clear Politics on their Electoral Map just moved Wisconsin froms Leans Obama to Toss-Up. This is based on a Daily Kos poll (!) which shows Obama as +1 in Wisc.

Yeah, but what happens if bozo is down by 15 points before the DNC convention?
Are you sure he is straight?
Hey I agree with you, it would be an epic blowout if we ran a real conservative running. But Obama going down in flames is a good thing for America, I want to see that no talent, hack go down and suffer. Economically these four years have been the worst of my life. I can live to fight another day under Romney, I can’t under Obama.
I agree with everything you wrote. I’ll add that with respect to the homo’s homo stance, he really screwed the pooch. I don’t buy the “half of America accepts homosexuality / same sex marriage” crap. I think it’s a LOT lower, but the PC environment makes them less likely to say how they truly feel about it.
I wonder what the Ohio polling looks like?
Yep. I surely wish I had another choice, but it is what it is.
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.
Thanks for the laugh this morning!
(imho) If the trend goes nationwide and 15% down at convention time and the trend looks to go lower, Katie bar the door .... a convention free for all and zer0 thrown out on on street? Don’t know. Things could go this way is my guess. The demonRATs are growing tired of being thrown under the bus, perhaps?
