Poll: Obama Up By 21 In North Carolina
So…I think we’re seeing a trend here.
Obama leads Hillary Clinton 54-33 in the state. He is making in roads among white voters in the state, trailing Clinton just 47-38, while maintaining his customary large advantage with black voters 81-10.
â€œThe race in North Carolina has really stabilized,â€ said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. â€œEven with both candidates now running tv ads in the state, Obama is maintaining his lead in that solid 20 point range. A reignition of the Wright controversy or some other issue for the Obama campaign could tighten it up but for now heâ€™s looking at a dominant victory.â€
The poll also found that 43% of likely voters think the drawn out primary contest could
hurt Democratic prospects in the fall. Obama has a 29 point lead with that group, an
indication that some voters may be moving toward his column because they want the
fight to be over with.
