Public Policy Polling is the best of them all for my money. Even when they go against what I hope for, they have proved right. Link directly to PPP for full details. They’ve released good news for Barack Obama in North Carolina. Including encouraging results from those who have never voted in primaries before.
Results of the latest poll are recounted in the release below.
Democratic Tracking Poll: President
Barack Obama 54
Hillary Clinton 36
Obama has retained a large lead in the state after a week in which both candidates made several appearances.
His greatest strength is coming from voters who have a history of voting in general elections but not in primaries. With that group he has a 60-32 advantage. Bringing more folks into the political process has been one of the central successes of the Obama campaign, and it appears he’s doing that in North Carolina.
Among voters who have a history of voting in primaries the race is much closer, with Obama sporting a 49-40 lead.
Obama now leads in every part of the state except the Mountains, which has very few black voters. He has an advantage across every age group, and is up by double digits with both men and women. He is also doing respectable with the white vote, where he has 36%, and has his customary large lead with black voters (81-11).
