With this article as the ONLY source: "43% of respondents think unfavorably of Romney. 42% think unfavorably of Obama. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.87 percentage points."
I'm quoting the article. So, the candidates are but 1% point apart with a 3.87% margin of error. So please tell me exactly how "Romney trails Obama in favorability in NC?" And while you're at it, acknowledge that A) polls are meaningless, B) what NC thinks in a national election is meaningless, and C) what respondents say before candidates have been declared is meaningless. Further more, the electoral college elects the president, NOT voters.
Since the pollsters did not specifically poll people most likely to vote, then 100% of the readers of this article recognize it for what it is: Wasted time and political propaganda, and easily the most stupid article I've read today.
