PPP poll shows Romney ahead in North Carolina
ABC ^ | June 12 2012

Posted on 06/12/2012 10:03:21 AM PDT by daivid

Left-leaning pollster PPP said Tuesday that its latest survey of potential North Carolina voters shows Mitt Romney leading President Barack Obama for the first time since October.

Public Policy Polling said Romney leads 48 percent to 46 - a gain of seven points on Obama since April, when the President led by a 49-44 margin

Read the first three words again. Yes, it came from the local ABC affiliate.

Will Obama hire new campaign staff? His attack ads are backfiring.

If Obama thought he could carry NC, he must have been smoking long crooked cigaretts. Romney will carry NC by 10+ %. You wont see any Obama AD money in NC this Fall.

Somewhere you can just hear Jimmah Carter saying “YESSS!” “Finally I am going to get out from under this legacy of being the country’s worst president!”

Seems like alot of crucial swing states are either tipping toward Romney or already in his collumn.

Odd choice of population to poll: “Potential voters”

I looked at the links. No mention of either registered or likely voter. It seems to be a poll of people who voted in the 2008 election, but I’m not sure. (BTW - this poll surveyed a population that voted 46/46 for Obama/McCain)

Rather tenuous situation, since the donks are holding the convention in Charlotte. Sucks to be them!

And it's good to see the race back even here in VA.

How liberal has North Carolina become? From comments I’ve read on FR it sounds pretty leftist... their governor even suggested that elections be suspended “for the good of the economy.”

Any NC Freepers care to weigh in?

PPP, despite being a Dem polster isn’t terrible. Just add in the 5% bias and they are pretty close. Obama’s only shot at a Southern state is Virginia. The rest are way gone to him.

Florida will be close too, but Romney should win there.

Obammy's chances of winning NC are slim to none. If he does somehow take it, he wins in an electoral landslide again.

With the North Carolina Black vote polling at 76% 0dumbo - 20% Romney he doesn't have a prayer. This after beating McCain 95% - 5% in 2008.

When a 90 pt. lead drops to a 56 pt. lead you've got serious, serious problems:

This keeps up for the next few weeks, we could be seeing the Bill & Hill show on the ticket. Seems like every bit of news coming out these days concerning Zero's 2012 prospects is all doom and gloom.

I don’t believe that blacks will vote for the white guy. They’ll either vote O or stay home and play X-Box.

“How liberal has North Carolina become?”

Our growing urban areas are going blue- huge influx of leftists from the NE. On the other hand, the Republicans finally have control of the legislature for the first time in over a century and Governor Bev is not running again. And the Democrat party here is pretty much in meltdown mode after some scandals. If we could run some of these folks back north, we might be able to salvage the place.

Can you interest them in a tour of Dismal Swamp?

Odumbo won NC by a very slim margin in ‘08. Heath Shuler retired bc they took Asheville out of his district, so look for the GOP to pick up one seat in the House and for Romney to win.

No way Obama wins VA this time. Look at the GOP landslides since 2008.

Just surprised that with the bad economy, even the lefty folks have not changed. What could happen is that, with the Dems in your state being in meltdown mode as you have said, many keep their politics to themselves.

“many keep their politics to themselves.”

That has actually been a quiet part of NC society since 1865. During the Civil War, the Union occupied the eastern part of the state, the Confederacy controlled the middle, and the west was mostly Union sympathizers. Afterward, the east and middle remained firmly in the hands of the Democrats, with some violence involved. Discussing politics was mostly framed in that context- if you were the wrong political party in the wrong place you didn’t talk about politics, because you might have to let your fists, knife, Sam Colt or Iver Johnson do your speaking. Even long after that, the attitude was, you didn’t talk politics outside of close friends or family. That’s gradually going by the wayside now- the Civil War/FDR Democrats are dying off, and the Republicans are gradually finding a voice. Mostly, the Democrats here have been very publicly incompetent in the last decade or so. The marriage amendment vote demoralized them a lot, also. That might be another factor in them being a bit quiet- they were rather stunned to find real NC still lives yet.

Look him up to see if he is still on voter rolls, and to see if he voted.
