abc11.com: Republican John McCain suddenly surges 20-points over Democrat Barack Obama in North Carolina 9/09/08

Quote:
In 3 previous SurveyUSA NC tracking polls, McCain had led by 8, 5, and 4 points. Today: 20. McCain has gained ground in every demographic group. Among men, McCain led by 9 last month, 27 today. Among women, Obama led by 2 last month, trails by 12 today. McCain holds 9 of 10 Republican voters; Obama holds 3 of 4 Democratic voters; independents, who were split last month, break today crisply for McCain, where, in the blink of an eye, he is up by 25.
Yep. Add to that Georgia, which Obama just recently pulled his money out of there. Florida will go McCain as well. Nice 50 state strategy, huh?

Does anyone else find it ODD that the picture that they have of obama in this article appears to be fatigued? mccain, while not ebulient, looks calmer.

Sorry to report that the Obama camp is in deep trouble. Maybe he needs to stick to the issues and give answer to the questions instead of talking about the issues with no plans or ideas.

All talk, no action from Obama.

No wonder McCain is beating him up everywhere.

That is great news! I hope for NC to always remain a red state. If you notice, people from blue states have been flocking here in droves. I worry their policy preferences may ruin a good thing. Traditional Democrats and Republicans have served us well over the last 40 years, liberalism however is already cracking the foundation of our region.

Interesting is that the coasts and the midwest are all that is needed. The south remains a nice to have.
