Obama Can Kiss North Carolina Goodbye … Rasmussen Election Poll 2012: North Carolina President North Carolina – Romney 51%, Obama 43%
RUT-ROH … more bad polling data for Barack Obama. The Tar Heel state is turning into an unmitigated disaster for North Carolina.
In a Rasmussen poll following Obama’s flip-flopping on the “Gay marriage” issue, Mitt Romney takes a 51% to 43% lead in North Carolina. The two were nearly tied just a month ago. However, that was then and this is now that Obama has become the “first gay” President. No sooner had 61% of North Carolinians voted for a referendum adopting a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, than Obama declared himself in favor of gay marriage and insulted Tar Heel voters. This was certain to take NC out of the so-called battleground states and into the leans Republican.
Mitt Romney has moved out to an eight-point lead over President Obama in North Carolina after the two men were virtually tied a month ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State shows the putative Republican nominee earning 51% of the vote to Obama’s 43%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
To make matters worse and completely awkward for Barack Obama and Democrats is that the Democrat National Convention is to be held in North Carolina later this summer. Oops.
President Barack Obama’s decision in February 2011 to hold the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina looked like a bold move to reclaim a state he’d won in 2008. Today, it’s more like an awkward fit.
The state’s Democratic Party is mired in a sexual harassment scandal. Voters just approved a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, which conflicts with Obama’s view on the issue. Convention fundraising has been slow, and labor unions tapped to fill the financial gap are angry the convention will be in a city — Charlotte — with no unionized hotels and in a state where compulsory union membership or the payment of dues is prohibited as an employment condition.

“Evolve” is the new leftist buzzword.
The implication being that those who are not “progressing” are “regressing”.
If Obama really does lose North Carolina, that would be HUGE. A HUGE indicator of what else is to follow, IMO.
I have been doing a little bit of pre-election polling on my own. Over the Mother’s Day Holiday, I was in a room with probably 45 people or more off and on throughout the day in my LIBERAL bleeding heart State of Mass. To all of those I polled, including ALL THAT HAD PREVIOUSLY voted for Obama and admitted they had a strong case of “buyer’s remorse” there was only one lone standout still drinking the KoolAide.
So that is the unofficial Boston poll. 99% of Bostonians gathered at a Beachside House in Nahant, Mass said they WOULD NOT vote for Obama again. Several also noted, that they changed their official Voter Identification status from DEMOCRAT to INDEPENDENT. Ok, so they didn’t make the change to REP- but most important- they made the change so they can vote for either party. Many pointed out to me (stubbornness) they had no intention of changing their PARTY denomination- that they just were not going to vote at all. I tried to compassionately explain to them the harm in NOT VOTING AT ALL. It is a simple PENSTROKE to change your Party’s denomination. It is a tragedy and a great disservice to not Vote at all if you care about your Country.
My Sister jokingly suggested I go down to Romney’s headquarters and volunteer. I told her I already do a lot of volunteer work for my community for the underprivileged, elderly and handicapped but I think she is right. I am calling them today.
=) Have a great day everyone.
