John McCain 45
Barack Obama 41
Bob Barr 5
John McCain continues to hold the 2-5 point lead that pretty much all public polling in North Carolina has shown over the last month. This is one state where the polls are not seeing wild fluctuations.
Obama continues to have difficulty nailing down the votes of self identified Democrats here- right now he leads 67-20 among them. It's not a new phenomenon for a meaningful number of voters in North Carolina to vote Democratic on much of their ballot but not for President, but Obama will need to push that number up closer to 80% to have much of a chance of taking the state.
John McCain is having a lot less trouble in this department, pulling the support of 83% of Republicans.
While this may not necessarily be the year North Carolina goes blue for the first time since 1976, there is some information in the poll that could bode well for Democratic prospects in the future. Barack Obama leads 46-40 among those surveyed who were born in a place other than North Carolina. John McCain has the 49-36 advantage with natives of the state. As more and more people come to North Carolina from other places, it could trend more Democratic in national elections.
