Rasmussen Reports ^ | August 02, 2012 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 08/02/2012 6:44:01 PM PDT by Doofer

Mitt Romney has a five-point edge over President Obama in the battleground state of North Carolina.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State finds Romney with 49% support, while the president earns 44% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and another four percent (4%) are undecided.

This moves the state from Toss-Up Status to Leans Romney in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.

It would be nice to be able to see the demographic and party affiliation breakdown, but not worth the money to subscribe.:)

Crap. That means his imperial majesty Comrade El Presidente Caliph Sheik Obama the First and his freeloading wife will make even more visits to our normal, quietly dying because of Democrats, state.

I drive home through a high dollar neighborhood and notice a lot of 20 somethings driving on the side roads in nice cars with Obama stickers. It just dawned on me today that they are living with their parents.

"Wednesday, August 01, 2012

The number of Americans who consider themselves Republicans fell for the second straight month while the number of Democrats held steady.

During July, 34.9% of Americans considered themselves Republicans. That’s down from 35.4% in June and from 35.7% in May.

The number of Democrats held steady at 34.0%. That marks a partial recovery for the president’s party. In February, just 32.4% described themselves as Democrats, the lowest level ever measured by Rasmussen Reports. Still, while the 34.0% figure is the best for Democrats in 2012, it’s down from earlier years. "-Rasmussen Reports

Hard to believe there are 44 percent of the people in North Carolina who want to reelect a radical gay, poverty pimping, hate mongering, anti Christian, anti business, Occutardded, golfing, vacationing, half-witted extension of his teleprompter. Are they stupid? Have things gotten so much better for them the last three and 3/4 years they think they need four more years of the same?

“Hey snarky”

Ah, yes the name calling. So typical. IMHO Mitt is light years better than Obama.

About 20-21% of NC voters are black. Among the rest of the voting population it's around 2:1 against.

When the Republicans can get their act together and run somebody for office who isn't really a leftwingtard, that candidate will get plenty of Conservative votes.

But you have to try, and you haven't tried this time.

Romney only has demonstrable support from barely 8% of Republicans.

It won’t be that close in November. Remember the marriage amendment vote in NC earlier this year?

“Romney only has demonstrable support from barely 8% of Republicans.”

Huh! The polls do not bear that out. Hey, my first choice was Sarah. Then I supported Newt. Now reluctantly Mitt. Again, IMHO Mitt is much better than Obama and the reason I will be voting for Mitt in November. If one chooses to vote third party or not at all that only helps Obama.

Polls deal with only a handful of people, and as you know, pollsters lie. Primaries give everyone a chance. Mitt simply didn’t have a showing of any significance ~ compared to final election results.

Somebody explain to me how a 5 point advantage is only a leans Romney. Even with margin of error I would think 5 points more than covers the state is in a solid position for now.

I don’t think Romney will win NC. He will not pick any states from 0bama. I think the election results will be the same as in 2008, with 0bama having a shot at also adding GA and MO to his states. We are officially a Socialist/Entitlement society. Americans love their hand outs and the love 0bama for giving it to them. It will be 0bama in a walk, I say 55% to 44% nationally.

IF this was an actual reflection of what is going on in North Carolina it WOULD be troubling, but as it stands it is an example of the fact that Democrats aren't answering polls. It must be increasing more difficult to try to put together an honest poll. Question: How is the Republican plus 10 in the gov race and Romney plus 5?
Has the Gay marriage had just a 5% difference for Obama who won by a handful in 2008? NONSENSE!

Ok, now will someone send this to Rove at FOX so when they do the stupid “electoral college analysis”, they will take NC off the “leans Rep” side...
And SC, too.
Cripes, they are annoying!

I was referring specifically to the party affiliation of those polled--how many were Democrat and how many were Republican.

It's only of interest as a means of comparing the results with those more notorious polls in which the Dems are polled 6-9% more than Republicans (or 19% in that last poll)--LOL.
