North Carolina: Romney 51%, Obama 45%
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 Obama’s 45%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
North Carolina remains Leans Romney in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. The two candidates remain close in both the daily Presidential Tracking Poll and daily Swing State tracking.
The race in North Carolina is little changed since August and Romney has consistently held a modest lead in the Tar Heel State all year. In 2008, Obama became the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter in 1976 to carry the state.
