actually think how President Obama does in his second term and the election of the new Republican Governor will move North Carolina back to the Blue column. This new Governor is coming in planning to make a lot of changes in North Carolina, which I don't think a lot of North Carolinians know what they are asking for.
This guy is going to cut a lot of services in North Carolina, which the local municipalities is going to ante up for such as education. He wants to have oil companies drilling off North Carolina's coast, for profits. I don't think it has anything to do for jobs but profits. North Carolina has never had a right wing legislature or Republican government. This will be new for this state. I definitely listened to this fell a's debate. I do not think this guy is for the state of North Carolina's interests. I think he is beholden to the national Republican Party.
I also think the Tea party had some influence in North Carolina. One thing McCrory promised to do as his first act in North Carolina was to enact voter ID. Since when has the state of north Carolina had a problem with voter fraud in this state's history? Pat McCrory knows this. This idea came from the national Republican Party and the Tea Party.
He'll probably try to infringe on individual rights also such as planned parenthood and abortion rights. I expect a lot of problems from this guy. I also expect President Obama to be very successful in his second term and the lies told on his Administration will be exposed in this state. One of the biggest reasons I think Obama loss North Carolina this time was the influence of racists giving people an excuse to vote against President Obama.
The drop in his support came from whites. He got 35 percent in 2008 which was small anyway but he only got 31 percent this time. That is the reason he loss. I think people were voting off race and not for their interests. Nevertheless, I still think the growing Demographics will get them in the end just like their entire racist party of they don't change. So it doesn't bother me, especially when I see Virginia and Florida going Blue twice. One step back for North Carolina but two steps forward in 2014 and 2016 with this experiment. As the Repukes say, Pat McCrory will be a one term Governor in North Carolina.
