The Obama campaign may be serious about targeting North Carolina. I heard last week they are sending 280 field organizers into the state.
The Rasmussen poll on WRAL showed Obama behind McCain by only 45-43.
Obama’s 43 percent is almost exactly what every Democratic presidential candidate going back to Dukakis in 1988 received here.
Big question: Is that Obama’s ceiling – or a floor?
Another big question: Are the polls underestimating the black vote?
Typically, polls at this point show Democrats getting only about 70 percent of the black vote. Obviously, that won’t happen. He’ll get 95-plus. That’s another 4-5 points for him. More if turnout explodes among blacks and young voters.
That’s what the 280 organizers are coming to do.
