Fred Thompson begins campaign ahead in NC

While Republicans around the country were awaiting Fred Thompson’s presidential campaign announcement on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, North Carolina Republicans were signaling their approval in Public Policy Polling’s latest tracking poll. Click here for complete results.

Republican President
Thompson 34%
Giuliani 16%
Romney 13%
McCain 7%

Thompson remains the leader in most southern states and he is getting stronger in North Carolina. Giuliani dips another point, while Romney continues a steady climb – he’s up a point. McCain’s support remains at 7%, far below where he was at the beginning of the year.

Democratic President
Clinton 30%
Edwards 28%
Obama 21%

Clinton and Edwards tussle for the top spot for the third month in a row. If Edwards wins Iowa, I would bet his support in North Carolina would grow rapidly. If Edwards doesn’t win Iowa, would he even make it to the North Carolina primary? I’m beginning to feel like a broken record in this race. When will something happen to upset the balance?

Democratic Governor
Perdue 35%
Moore 28%

The bickering between campaigns has grown much louder this month. But so far the voters haven’t budged.

Republican Governor
Graham 23%
Orr 9%
Smith 9%

This race hasn’t changed one bit in months. Wake me when something happens.

Democratic Lt. Governor
Dellinger 11%
Smathers 10%
Dalton 9%
Besse 8%
Undecided 62%
