I've been hiding under a rock ashamed because NC was a last holdout

but Rachel just said NC is up by 2 points - Obama is now leading.

Hallelujah.
More hard work ahead, but we are going in the right direction finally.

I'm in NC too. This calls for more bumper stickers.

3. I was looking at real clear politics

and Obama actually leads in all but the polls from civitas (state republican pollsters) and Rassmusen (national republican pollsters)

5. I'm in NC also ... and I hope we win here, but if not, I hope our efforts become

the distraction that Mitt and his money can't deny.

If we are the diversion, that helps is win the war, so be it.

Arizona. If Obama is up 2 points here by Election Night, I'm not hiding under a rock.

Congratulations and good luck, NC!

I understand our one Nebraska EV is leaning toward Obama too. That both pleases and surprises me after the district lines were redrawn.

9. He's been to Asheville three times and they love him here!

The last visit, after he became president, was especially exciting! I just wish the rest of the state was less "evangelical".

13. I have no doubt

N.C. will go blue once again. I have faith in her. I see no support for Rmoney around here at all and I was so proud to see pro Obama signs in peoples yards yesterday. They are popping up every where now and I have yet to see a Rmoney sign or bumper sticker. I am very proud of my State and I know we will win for Obama once again.

They will see, recognize, and embrace each other. Humanity will not be denied!

21. I've seen a small handful of R/R signs

and 2 large handfuls of Obama signs.
Bumper stickers are scarce for both, least I've ever seen.
BUT
I have only seen TWO for R/R.

17. With a 2 percent lead, be very careful about voting integrity issues.

Electronic voting is not safe if there isn't an audit and a paper trail.

22. I believe the Christian Righties will stay at home (a lot will) partly because

of Mitt's Mormonism. They won't vote for Obama, but they just won't vote.

And the lower income white folks just aren't all fired up about Millionaire Mitt. I think they are uneasy with him. Again, they won't vote for Obama, but they might just sit this one out.

Now, if we get out the vote for President Obama, we might just go blue again here in NC! And once again I think we'll have a huge African American turn out.

24. "Thank you

GAWD!!!," she said in her deepest NC accent on behalf of all her democratic ancestors, those who fought against the King in the Revolutionary War, who came from France as endentured servants and Germany as Palatines and Wales as hard working people that liked to also party and those who were Pottawatomie... still working on that line...
Thank You!!!!! .........
Now maybe my cousin with flip. She hates to lose. It would be nice to be able to talk with her again............
HOPE and CHANGE and FOWARD! I love our president.

25. Having the convention in NC will turn out to be another masterstroke.



Just like Gen. Grant he's spreading the front lines making Romney's defenses thinner and thinner.

31. My poor, Libertarian, Fox "News" watching brother isn't voting

He was up for a funeral for a few days and kept saying "well, I can't vote for either of them" and I just kept repeating "that's good". I refuse to engage him. He once claimed that "20% of the voters in NC were illegals". Really? Because immigrants without documentation believe it's worth it to risk exposure and deportation to VOTE? Really? He claims there are downticket races he wants to vote in, but knowing him and his wife, they won't make it to the polls, so there you go - two fewer idiots that will be voting in NC

He makes minimum wage in Fayetteville, and works for a company that won't give either he or his wife full time work so that they don't have to provide any benefits, even though they always work them just up to the maximum number of hours allowable for part-timers. And they are SO grateful for these crap jobs.

It kills me when people who are so incredibly screwed by corporate America identify as Libertarians

34. the immigrants voting thing really gets me

I was talking to someone who is hot and heavy for voter id. I just sort of rolled my eyes and said, "I don't think immigrants are coming here beating down the door to vote in our elections..... half the citizenry can't be bothered to vote." There was no response. Really, how much money has been spent on this insane non-issue?
