Steady As Steady Could Be in North Carolina Democratic Primary: In a Democratic Primary in North Carolina today, 04/08/08, four weeks to the 05/06/08 Primary, Barack Obama is 10 points atop Hillary Clinton, exactly where Obama was two months ago, according to a SurveyUSA tracking poll conducted exclusively for WTVD-TV, the ABC-owned TV station in Raleigh. SurveyUSA's interactive tracking graphs show remarkable stability within the sub-populations. Among men, over the past 2 months, Obama led by 18, by 13, and today by 15 points. Among women, Obama led by 2, by 3, and today by 6 points. Among whites, Clinton led by 19, by 17, and today by 22 points. Among blacks, Obama led by 65, by 61, and today by 75 points. Obama has gained ground in Raleigh, where he led by 8 points last month and by 18 points today. The contest remains effectively tied in Charlotte, with Clinton now sea-sawing past Obama, but still within sampling error. And Obama retains the slightest lead in Southern and Coastal Carolina, where Obama led by 4 in February, by 8 in March, and by 11 today. Among voters under age 50, Obama's lead has increased from 19 points last month to 29 points today. Among voters age 50+, Clinton advances slightly, from a 4-point lead last month to an 11-point lead today.
