As I wrote about a couple weeks ago, white men could be the demographic that determines whether Barack Obama can deliver a crushing blow to Hillary Clinton in North Carolina. With black voters almost universally supporting Obama and white women nearly always going for Clinton, white men are the swing voters. Our poll earlier this week gave him some pretty good news on that front.
Obama currently leads Clinton 47-43 among white men in the state. He's going to earn a double digit victory in just about any state where he keeps it close with that group, and he's going to win big time when he's leading it.
It'll be interesting to see if he can hold onto that edge after an aggressive week of campaigning by the Clintons in the state.
