We’ll see if this holds up: Blogger Bob Owens calls NC for Obama.
I just got off the phone with Mike Ash, Director of the Durham County Board of Elections in Durham, NC. He doesn’t have any numbers as far as percentages of eligible voters making it to the polls at this point, but said several polling locations have already hit record numbers. That is as of 11:30 AM. It appears that the record turnout in early voting on Sunday is expected to continue through today.
This matters because Durham is something of a bellwether of African-American voter turn-out in North Carolina. A high African-American turnout—and it appears that is indeed occurring—makes a Clinton win impossible.
At this point, the only thing worth discussing is Obama’s margin of victory here in the Tarheel State.
If you’re in NC, give us a shout-out nad let is know what you’re hearing/feeling.
Turnout is indeed high.
Will today be Obama’s Crackerquiddick rebound?blog comments powered by Disqus
