    RALEIGH (WTVD) -- In an election for President of the United States in North Carolina Tuesday, September 09, Republican John McCain suddenly and breathtakingly surges to a 20-point win over Democrat Barack Obama, 58% to 38%, according to this latest exclusive SurveyUSA election poll conducted for ABC11-WTVD.
    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.
    The following was asked of 671 likely voters (more data on collection listed at the bottom):
    If the election for President were today, would you vote for ... (choices rotated) Republican John McCain? Or, Democrat Barack Obama?

    58% McCain (R)
    38% Obama (D)
    2% Other
    2% Undecided

    The Results of a SurveyUSA Election Poll
    Geography Surveyed: North Carolina
    Data Collected: 09/06/2008 - 09/08/2008

    McCain is now in front among the educated and less educated, among the affluent and less affluent. He's polling at 64% in Coastal Carolina (up from 57%), at 60% in Charlotte (up from 53%), and at 54% in Raleigh / Greensboro (up from 44%). Pro-Life voters backed McCain 2:1 last month, 4:1 this month.

    SurveyUSA interviewed 900 North Carolina adults 09/06/08 - 09/08/08. All interviews were completed after the Labor Day weekend, and after the conclusion of the Republican National Convention. Of the 900 adults, 783 were registered to vote; of them, 671 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote in the 11/04/08 general election. North Carolina has 15 Electoral College votes. Incumbent Republican President George W. Bush carried the state by 12 points in 2004 and by 13 points in 2000.

    That should help Dole in her tough re-election campaign.

    I'm wondering what it's looking like in the Mid-West, and Pennsylvania, Florida and Colorado.

    Anyone seen any good polls from those states?

    These nation-wide polls are next to worthless when it comes to analyzing the race.

    In PA - McCain has made up a lot of ground over the last month. 8/24 Obama was +7%. Yesterday, Obama was only +2%.

    In FL - 2 polls came out today... Rasmussen having the race tied, and PPP having McCain +5%.

    In CO - One of the only states that Obama has gained ground in, which may be attributed to having the DNC held their. Yesterday Obama was shown +3.

    The only Midwest states that have polls out recently are Ohio and Wisconsin. Ohio has McCain +7, up from Obama +2% on 9/02. Wisconsin has Obama +3, down from Obama +7 a month ago.

    it is interesting to see the swings and the changes of opinion. i do think many who don't live/breathe political forums tend to wait it out and tune out the primaries and just wait til it's "game on" and you get a better feel for where it sits among the average, not fanatical.

    no idea on the reports/polls but what i have seen does show america seems to favor palin for a variety of reasons. she's genuinely likeable. she's smart. she's attractive.

    and she hunts from a helicopter. ;)

    so as a general trend we're either seeing mccain now ahead or obama's lead shrinking? is that fair to say?
