Skip to comments.North Carolina: Romney 51%, Obama 45% (Rasmussen)
Posted on 09/14/2012 7:09:34 AM PDT by KansasGirl
Mitt Romney has cleared the 50% mark again in the battleground state of North Carolina despite the presence of the Democratic National Convention there little over a week ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely North Carolina Voters shows Romney with 51% support to President Obamas 45%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

THAT is good news! One by one...
In reality, Romney is likely leading by ten points. You might as well move the undecided over to him now as anybody putting themselves in the undecided column today are not going to be voting for Obama tomorrow. Obama can only lose votes from this point on - he's not going to be winning anybody over. Romney however still has much potential to win votes.
This state is locked up.
That 45 percent for Obama in NC is about the same solid bloc that voted against Senator Helms five times! What helps Obama is the vote in Charlotte and Asheville. I don’t know about Raleigh and Wilmington though.
If you set the bleating Obama-boosting MSM noise machine aside, the trends look promising. After last weekend and the warm afterglow of the DNC drops out of the polls and people digest what has transpired this week we may get an even more promising look at the situation.
I have no proof whatsoever but I think Ras is now slightly undercounting Republicans.
"Despite"?? Maybe "helped by" the presence of the DNC Freak Show.
I still find 45% support for the likes of HomObama deplorable. After the vote for marriage in May and HomObama’s immediate attack by fully jumping on the sodomite bandwagon, it ought to be in the 20’s.
Probably the case everywhere else too. He has his 43% ~ as we all recall that's how Bill Clinton won nationwide ~ with 43%.
Should be possible to do that without the help of R. Perot too ~ since the effect is most pronounced in the blue states with the electoral votes.
Folks running the predict the election gameboards probably ought to go back and reconsider their input and output if the Dems still have a hard lock on that crowd.
BTW mittbots, that means you can lose Virginia with or without Virgil Goode in the mix ~ but Virgil can win if you shift your donations and votes to him. We need to have a substantial increase in Republican and Conservative turnout here ~
You’re right - the lead is probably closer to a 10% Romney lead. Between the marriage amendment and the train wreck of a Dim Governor and Party, there’s a slacking coming to Barry in North Carolina in November.
But what the hell is wrong with people in Ohio?
Rasmussen has Omoslem UP one point there.
Rasmussen’s model doesn’t seem to allow for truly wide margins one direction or another. They pick the winner but usually with conservative margins.
I was working in Charlotte NC for over 3 months- they were not pleased by the convention
Venders paid $3000 to be allowed to set up a booth and sell there, then were cordoned-off away from potential customers.
Other suppliers have not been paid- the location was moved BECAUSE they could not GIVE AWAY enought tickets to fill the original place- and all around Obozo and his incompetant band of “merry men” [if you catch my drift] left a bad taste [so to speak] to many.
Hotel rooms that were booked were left empty and unpaid. I was told we would not be able to get rooms that week, then as the convention approached we got calls back saying that we could
Obambi WILL LOSE NC.
Exactly...one by one. Romney has an interesting strategy. The guys working with him out of Boston are brilliant. He really has Obama all over the place. Axelrod is about to have a nutty
Barry sure hasn’t been showing up in Wisconsin - only joking Joe. I haven’t heard the rumor but it wouldn’t surprise me. Between the Brown and general Republican trend there and a solid Catholic Republican Vice President on the ticket, I can extrapolate Wisconsin going for R & R.
Please... unless you live in Idaho, Utah or Wyoming, your state is NEVER "locked up." American voters can turn very stupid in a hurry.
obama is done in NC.
On to Ohio....
The key question is what are the other 8 or so swing states showing? NC most likely will be in the Romney column but the others are still undetermined.
You are right. Always run as if you are way behind.
I think Scott secretly supports Romney and doesn't want to do anything that might screw things up.
He is using 13% AA turnout. It may be 11 to 12 percent.
And I was proud to vote for him every time since 1980. I so miss him. Others have pointed out that other Dem concentrations are in the RTP = Research Triangle Park = Raleigh/NCSU/state capitol, Durham/Duke and Chapel Hill/UNC-CH with Cary in the middle. Also the new demographic of "tweeners" = northeasterner retirees settling among the golf resorts in SE NC instead of going to FL. At least the incumbent Dem governor is on her way out.
AA-—sorry, I don’t follow. What is AA.
