We're going to go ahead and do the January primary tracking poll for North Carolina. Barring technological malfeasance the polls will be released Thursday and Friday.
One twist for this month's poll is that we are going to include unaffiliated voters in the primary sample for the first time. We have been buying one sample of registered Democrats who are likely primary voters and another sample of registered Republicans who are likely primary voters. That covers most of the primary electorate but was excluding unaffiliated voters who can choose either party's primary. So they will be included for the first time in this month's results and we'll see what impact they have.
