Mitt Romney has cleared the 50% mark again in the battleground state of North Carolina despite the presence of the Democratic National Convention there little over a week ago.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely North Carolina Voters shows Romney with 51% support to President Obama’s 45%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

North Carolina remains Leans Romney in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. The two candidates remain close in both the daily Presidential Tracking Poll anddaily Swing State tracking.

The race in North Carolina is little changed since August and Romney has consistently held a modest lead in the Tar Heel State all year. In 2008, Obama became the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter in 1976 to carry the state.

Forty percent (40%) of North Carolina voters rate their personal finances as good or excellent, while 16% describe them as poor. Thirty percent (30%) think their finances are getting better, but 39% say they’re getting worse.

Voters nationally consider the economy far and away the number one issue as they go to the polls, and in North Carolina 52% of voters trust Romney more than Obama when it comes to handling the economy. Forty-three percent (43%) trust the president more. That’s comparable to the national average.

When it comes to health care, Romney has a 50% to 47% edge over the president in terms of voter trust. Forty-eight percent (48%) trust the GOP challenger more in the area of national security, while 44% trust Obama more.

Romney has similar modest leads in voter trust in the areas of taxes - 48% to 45% - and energy policy - 47% to 45%.

    I hope N.C voters would realize with the slogans of the Hope and Change or going Forward going to be much of same. Bring new President to White House and to fix the real issues and bring the right direction back in this country. (this time)

    All polls except PPP have shown Romney ahead in North Carolina so we're not sure what you're babbling about. Let's have a look at the Electoral Map by State Polls for today:

    RCP is not a poll. It is a compilation average of all polls. Your beloved Rasmussen is included. Go to the link and click on a state to show the individual polls for that state.
