NC President '12: Obama (D) 47.0% Romney (R) 44.0% (Oct. 24 - Grove Insight)

WI President '12: Obama (D) 48.0% Romney (R) 43.0% (Oct. 25 - Grove Insight)  

Just the latest round of a good polling day. More beyond the fold.

From the North Carolina poll:

President Obama Leads in North Carolina
 The race in North Carolina has begun to stabilize with Obama and Romney receiving the same as they did last week (47% to 44%).

 The President’s  lead can be attributed to a widening gender gap. Last week women gave Obama a six point advantage; this week the margin has grown to seven (50% to 43%). Romney is now up by one point among men (44% to 45%), whereas the race was tied several days ago..

 The typical generational divides can be found here with younger voters offering a double-digit lead to the President (52% to 40%) and Romney has the advantage with the over-50 crowd (42% to 48%).  Though it is worth noting that the President has picked up a little steam with voters 70+ -- his vote totals increased by seven points since last week’s track.

Obama wins Independent voters right now (49% Obama, 36% Romney), though he’s running behind among white Independents (38% to  44%).The difference is explained by Obama’s performance among African American Independents (77% to 9%).

 While Obama is more likely to be thought to “understand the struggles middle class families face” by a wide, 10-point margin, the difference between the two when it comes to steady leadership (+6) and trusted decision making (+4 Obama) are closer.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
