39. NC has always been fairly Independent

last to leave the Union in the war of northern aggression, (I kid) the first to rejoin the union once it was over, A part of NC left during the war, we even have a Union County. I realize that was a long time ago, however...

Now we have several urban areas Charlotte, Raleigh/Durham, Greensboro, Ashville etc that are highly democratic. The Democratic voters in these areas simply outnumber the Republicans in the rural areas. We've lost a lot of industry - from high tech to furniture to textiles - and we have a large military population, probably areas around Fayetteville and Jacksonville will probably be red. otoh, the coast benefited from more vacationers over the past few years, and they really understand the need for FEMA.

I was very very disappointed with Amendment one, and felt the church freaks were better organized.
