    I like the poll, it is very encouraging. But I still think NC is going to be extremely difficult for Obama. Yes, he won here in 2008, but it was very very close call.

    Governor Purdue is very unpopular.
    Jobless rate is high and above the National Average.
    NC air waves are inundated with right wing Radio 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The only progressive voices we had here in the triangle have been closed and moved to Charlotte. The remaining stations spew hate. They race bait. We still have Virginia Fox and all the Jesse Helm leftovers.
    Even Democrats in this state don't want to have anything to do with Obama.
    And we are the state of blue dogs ... like Heath Schueler ...
    For Obama to win, Big cities have to come out almost 75% for him to make up the deficit in rural areas.
    I don't sound very optimistic ... I know, I know... I really hope we can keep a Democratic Governor.
