The liberal Public Policy Polling (PPP) group conducted a D+10 poll in North Carolina and still found Mitt Romney with a 2-point lead over President Barack Obama (49%-47%).
In the poll, Romney leads Obama by 30 points among white voters (64%-33%) and by 14 points among independents (54%-40%).
PPP surveyed 1,084 likely North Carolina voters from October 12 to 14th, and the margin of error was +/- 3.0%.
In 2008, Obama barely won North Carolina by .04 points when he had a D+11 turnout advantage. Obama will not have that same advantage in 2012 because there is considerably less enthusiasm for his candidacy.
