Title: North Carolina, PPP -- Senate close. Clinton/Trump tied
Post by: pbrower2a on April 27, 2016, 02:58:14 pm
(T)he Presidential race looks like it will once again be a toss up in the Tar Heel state. Hillary Clinton ties Donald Trump at 44% head to head, and leads Ted Cruz 45/40. This continues a trend we've been finding a lot lately of Cruz being even more unpopular than Trump. Cruz has a -35 net favorability spread in North Carolina (24/59) which makes Trump's -25 (33/58) look good in comparison. The Republican who would be strongest in the state is John Kasich who leads Clinton 46/39 and Sanders 43/41 but that seems relatively immaterial at this point. Sanders would lead Cruz 46/38 and Trump 46/43.

Can't wait for the conservative meltdown here on Atlas when the Dems win NC and Republicans realize they're slowly but surely losing the state just like they lost VA years ago.

As long as they keep becoming more and more extreme, more and more states will be lost from their rank and file.

Her sabre-rattlers at PPP don't put her ahead of Trump!?

Oh no!

This means Donald is ahead by 5, and probably leading Florida, as well. 

Apocalyptic news for Ms. Hillary.   The GOP might survive after all!  : (

NC isn't NH. :P But if Trump is tied here, he's not winning the GE.

Nope, sorry. NC is not even close to VA, and even at a constant GOP downhill trend (also a myth; electorates and party ideology shifts and adjusts drastically over time + factor in favorability & preference for change in office, .etc) it's not a blue state anytime soon.

Donald Trump (at least for right now) and Ted Cruz don't exactly embody the average electability of a Republican.

With the republicans running the state, I think Trump and Cruz represent them perfectly fine.

As a native North Carolinian I can attest to this.

PPP always shows ridiculously high unfavorables for everyone for reasons unknown.

Why aren't the Cruz numbers of him trailing 45-40 being mocked? Do we not want to trigger the conservative movement that thinks he will outperform Trump because muh Utah
