Obama Giving Up On North Carolina?

Via Ace, who positions that Obama is pulling out

(Politico) The president’s campaign has remained on the television airwaves and his wife made a prominent debate-day push in advance of early-voting kicking off in the state.

However, President Obama has not stepped foot in the state since his convention drew to a close nearly six weeks ago.  After he touches down in Iowa and New Hampshire this week, every other battleground state will have gotten some in-person Obama post-convention love except for the Tar Heel state.

Michelle was just in Chapel Hill on the campus of UNC yesterday (then took an unnecessary and evil fossil fueled plane trip to Hampstead, NY for the debate). Biden has been here in the intervening weeks since the DNC convention. But, no Obama. And, I have noticed that the number of pro-Obama ads have been drying up over the last few weeks, at least on the channels I watch.

The most recent poll is from the far left Public Policy Polling, giving Romney a 2 point advantage (49-47). Oh, and that is with a ….. wait for it…… +10 Democrat sampling (D45 R35 I21). And women sampled 54% to 46% men. And only includes 20% over 65 (seniors tend to have higher voting rates. This does not bode well at all for Obama. Bummer. Other interesting tidbits from the poll

  • Obama is found unfavorable by 50% (48% approve)
  • Romney is found favorable by 49% (46 unfavorable)
  • Ryan favorable by 48% (46% not)

Did I mention this was a +10 Dem sample?

Oh, and Black support is waning for Obama in NC.
