North Carolina Poll: Clinton Up by Just One Point
A new CNN/ORC poll of North Carolina shows that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is only up one point versus Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Clinton earned 44 percent of registered voters in the poll while Trump came in at 43 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earned 11 percent.
Forty-nine percent of North Carolina voters believe that Trump is honest and trustworthy — ten points above Clinton, who sits at 39 percent.
According to CNN, Green Party Candidate Jill Stein was not included on the poll because she will not appear on the ballot there.
Obama won North Carolina early in 2008 but Mitt Romney barely pulled off a win in the state in 2012.
The CNN/ORC poll included a sample of 1,009 adults including 912 registered voters. The margin of sampling error is 3.5 percentage points.
