Romney Leads Obama In NC

After all the Democrat smearing of North Carolina post Amendment 1 passing, calling North Carolinians all sorts of names, how’s the race shaping up? (Via Ed Morrissey)

Mitt Romney has moved out to an eight-point lead over President Obama in North Carolina after the two men were virtually tied a month ago.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State shows the putative Republican nominee earning 51% of the vote to Obama’s 43%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. That’s a big change from last month when Romney posted a narrow 46% to 44% lead over the president in Rasmussen Reports’ first survey of the race in North Carolina.

Democrats have signaled North Carolina’s importance as a key swing state by deciding to hold their national convention in Charlotte this summer.

Ed breaks Dow the polling data, which includes some shocks for Obama and the Democrats regarding women’s support for Romney.

It’s still early in the race, but this kind of poll will surely put Team Obama closer to panic mode.
