An Elon University poll shows President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are locked in a tie in North Carolina.
|President Barack Obama, disembarking from Air Force One in Charlotte in September, is in a statiscal dead heat with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney according to an Elon University poll. The survey showed 45. 4 percent of likely voters backing Obama compared to 45.3 percent for Romney.|
Obama polled 45.4 percent to Romney’s 45.3 percent, with 5.1 percent undecided.
The survey of 1,238 live telephone interviews with likely voters by landline and cell phone was conducted Oct. 21-26 and has a 2.8 percent margin of error. The poll reveals a large advantage for Democrats in early voting and more enthusiasm for their candidates.
“Many have recently questioned North Carolina’s status as a battleground state,” survey authors Kenneth Fernandez and Jason Husser wrote in a summary. “The results of the latest … poll suggest that North Carolina is still very much in play.”
Romney leads among non-leaning independent voters by double digits, but Democrats have a voter registration registration advantage of about 800,000, which closes Obama’s deficit among unaffiliated voters. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, led Obama in Elon’s August poll from Elon by 4.2 percent. But Obama leads by 18 points among early voters, 1.5 million of which have already cast ballots, according to an analysis from George Washington University.
Romney leads Obama 48 percent to 43 percent among those who plan to vote on Election Day.
The Elon survey found an increase in enthusiasm across all demographic groups, especially those seen as key to Obama’s chances of winning in November. Seventy-four percent of likely voters said they were somewhat or very excited about the election, a 4 percent increase from August. That excitement was fairly even across men and women, across Democrats and Republicans, and across supporters of both candidates.
Young voters (18-30 years old) are much more likely to vote for Obama, while Romney leads among voters over 40. Black voters, who make up 21.5 of likely voters, are also more focused on the election, with 61 percent saying they are very excited as opposed to 50 percent in August. Obama is holding steady among African-Americans at 88 percent saying they have or will vote for the incumbent compared to 89 percent in the August survey.
|Any self respecting woman will not even think of voting republican or Romney. They think of women like the cattle, who can be "legitimately raped" and must enjoy the resulting pregnancy as a holy experience. |
Taliban believe rape is a woman's fault. Mormons and fundamentalists the same.
Taliban trade women. Mormons do the same (women are commodities).
Taliban keep their wom
en under total control. Mormonthe same.
Taliban believe in child marriages. Mormon thesame.
Taliban believe it is okay to lie for Islam. Mormon
and Fundamentalist believe the same (that's why Romney lies).
Taliban hate infidels. Mormons hate blacks.
Taliban don't drink. Mormons don't drink.
Taliban can have 4 wives. Mormons can have as many as they want like Romney's grandfather.

|If Obama loses this election, you can blame/thank the Right for bamboozling him. How is it ethical that an entire news network questions the President?s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country. Watch the white hands apply the Blackface to our first African-American President at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html|

|Governor Romney wanted to let Detroit go bankrupt (his editiorial, not mine).|
Mr Romney wanted to let home foreclosures hit bottom (his words, not mine).
He says we can't afford FEMA and we should turn it over to the states. (his words, not mine)........
The Governor is a very dangerous man. Certainly the wrong type of leader for these precarious times.
