TOPICS: News/Current Events; Politics/Elections; US: North Carolina
KEYWORDS: 2012; obama; romney; ryan; vanity
2008: 2.6 million early votes Dems-51.4% Reps-30.2% 18-29: 14.9% (Hope and Change) White: 69.2%; Black: 26.5
2012 as of 11/2: 2.258 million early votes Dems-48.0%; Reps-31.8% (Dems slowly decreasing and reps slowly increasing this week)
18-29: 11.7% (no hope and change)
White: 67.7%; Black: 27.4% (percentage of whites is slowly increasing and percentage of blacks slowly decreasing this week)
Obama only beat McCain by 0.4% I think we have enough data here to show that Romney should win NC pretty comfortably. Not a 10 point blowout but I would think 5 to 7 points. My takeaway: blacks are showing up for BO but not the college crowd.

Of course there’s no way to see or account for the dems voting for Romney or republicans coming back home from a spell of hopenosis.
Also the obvious big one is how Independents will break for Romney as opposed to how widely they went for zero in 08’.
Plus there will be a number (small but still existent) of blacks that vote against the gay lover.
I wouldn’t rule out a 10 point win for Romney.

( the tree of liberty is withering like a stricken fig tree)
I understand local Obama office manned by NAACP crowd, has pretty well transported every black student from nearby predominantly black university to the polls already.

(AfganistaMr Obama said the goal was to "disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-hereQaeda" and its allies.)
Any big changes or surprises?
