31. I thought Obama was going to win NC as well. The momentum was high with OFA NC

It was VERY disappointing on election night hearing that NC turned back red. I LOVED the diversity of everyone on the North Carolina for Obama team. But sadly I think that the NEGATIVE ads against Obama worked for the GOP and scared their base into thinking that Obama hasn't brought any jobs to NC - government doesn't create jobs BUT there are TONS of jobs coming back to NC. And then there were tons of stories I heard of people across the state that were given a hard time at the polls - my mom included. She was told to fill out a special form due to change of address which was a lie. So nope, I'm not convinced that Romney truly won in NC.

Obama won in Guilford County (where I reside) and for that I can be proud. I was driving around town near UNC-G that Sunday after the first debate (when feelings were low for all of us) and in the residential area I saw numerous Obama-Biden signs and I felt great again. I hope the President knows that he still has our support in NC. Hope he comes back numerous times during his second term. Shook his hand (and Biden's too!) in 2008 and I will never forget it.

But these people that want to secede here in NC, I will glady help them pack and leave!
