Another Pivotal Swing State Is Now Polling Strong For Trump

With two months to go before the November general election, Republican Donald Trump (44 percent) leads Democrat Hillary Clinton (41 percent), by 3 points in North Carolina, according to a Suffolk University poll of likely voters in the Tar Heel State.

The poll is a statistical dead heat and is within the survey’s margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points. When asked who they think will win the November presidential election, 49 percent said Clinton and 33 percent Trump, with 17 percent undecided.

Demographic trends

Forty percent of North Carolina voters are registered as Democrats, 30 percent as Republicans and 30 percent as independents.

Clinton gained the support of 84 percent of African-American voters in North Carolina compared to 7 percent for Trump. However, among white voters Trump led Clinton 57 percent to 28 percent.

Issues of concern

The voters polled said that the number one issue facing the next president is jobs/economy (24 percent) followed closely by terrorism and national security (21 percent), choosing Supreme Court nominees (11 percent), illegal immigration (7 percent), and education and health care (tied at 6 percent).

Among those most concerned about jobs and the economy, Trump led Clinton 46 percent to 36 percent, and among those who cited terrorism/national security as the most important issue, he led 58 percent to 33 percent. Clinton topped Trump 67 percent to 17 percent among voters most concerned about education, and those concerned about health care preferred Clinton 68 percent to 21 percent.

Among gun owner households Trump led Clinton 58 percent to 27 percent, while the numbers were flipped in households without guns: Clinton 58 percent to Trump’s 28 percent. Asked whether they have felt more or less safe living in America over the past five to 10 years, 52 percent said less safe; 30 percent said there was no change; and 13 percent said safer.

Both Clinton and Trump are seen as untrustworthy: Clinton by 60 percent of likely voters and Trump by 50 percent.
