Obama Maintains North Carolina Lead

Posted April 9, 2008 at 11:30am

Barack Obama has a 49 percent to 39 percent lead over Hillary Clinton in North Carolina with 7 percept undecided, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted April 5-7. The margin of error is 3.7 percent. SurveyUSA says this is exactly where Obama was two months ago, although polls in late March by American Research Group and Public Policy Polling had him ahead by larger margins.

Obama is ahead among both men and women voters, and all age groups except those over 65. There’s a stark racial divide: Clinton leads among white voters (62 percent of the sample) by 53 percent to 31 percent, while Obama is ahead among black voters (32 percent of the sample) by 85 percent to 10 percent.
