North Carolina Poll: Donald Trump 44%, Ted Cruz 33%, John Kasich 11%…

Polls this close to election day (tomorrow), when absentee ballots and early voting have already taken place, are notoriously sketchy.  However, the PPP Poll (full pdf below) does have all of the head-to-head matchups included, and those can put some of the media hype to rest.

Donald Trump is leading in the overall polled responses, and also would be leading each of the candidates individually in head-to-head contests.

(Via PPP) […] Compared to a month ago Trump’s support is up 15 points and Cruz’s is up 14 points. Kasich’s remained in place, and Rubio has seen his support collapse 9 points. Trump appears to already be building up a lead among early voters – he’s at 46% to 38% for Cruz, 11% for Kasich, and 4% for Rubio. Among those planning to vote on election day Trump gets 43% to 32% for Cruz, 11% for Kasich, and 8% for Rubio.

If there’s a path to #NeverTrump in North Carolina it’s Kasich and Rubio voters uniting around Cruz. Trump’s lead over Cruz declines to 49/43 when the two are matched head to head because Rubio voters overwhelmingly move to Cruz in that scenario (70/20) and Kasich voters move to Cruz as well, although by a pretty narrow 39/34 margin.

Head-To-Head Matchups: 

north carolina head to head

One big thing Trump has going for him is that he has the most committed supporters. 89% of Trump voters say they’ll definitely cast their ballots for him, compared to 84% of Cruz, 68% of Rubio, and 65% of Kasich supporters who say the same for their candidate. Cruz needs to hope those Rubio and Kasich voters open to changing their minds gravitate toward him if he’s going to have a chance to win the state.

Interestingly Kasich is now the most broadly popular candidate in North Carolina, with a 60/23 favorability rating. Trump’s next at 56/38, followed by Cruz at 51/35, and continuing the recent trend Rubio is now under water in his image with North Carolina Republicans as just 39% see him favorably to 48% who have a negative opinion.

    People say Kasich is vying for VP, but he voted for NAFTA. In this electorate, not sure how you square that circle.

    Plus, Trump is wildly unpredictable. It’s going to be someone no one is thinking about.

    Ohio needs to close for Trump. Unite us. We need to stop the “brokered” nonsense. Trump is the only one who can win.

    I try to be positive but I can’t be happy about Trump’s numbers given all that has happened in the past few months, weeks, and days. How can it be that Trump doesn’t have this thing already sewn up and that Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich get any voters at all? It seems that people are mind-numbingly stupid and rotten to the core.

          I do not underestimate Cruz support in NC.

          Many I work with in the County Party org see ithe GOP here as “misguided” as opposed to wholly corrupt and aligned with the same powers as the Democrat Party. These are “rouges” too – among those of us who worked hard to oust the 100 year Democrat rule in NC. For example, they cannot/will-not see Gov McCrory (R) as the GOPe that he is.

          The GOPe in NC has mastered the art of vote splitting using evangelicals.

          Trump scares them. Crux comforts them.

              The unknown and unlikely polled is the significant Unaffiliated presence in North Carolina. It almost equals the amount of Republican registrations – roughly 2.5 million D, 1.9 million R and 1.8 million Unaffiliated. Unaffiliated can choose either ballot. I fully expect many unaffiliated voters to vote Trump – both democrat and republican-leaning unaffiliated voters

            As we’ve seen all primary season the south gets it about Cruz. They can see through the masquerade he’s putting on. Also, we don’t know yet the full impact of Cruz’s disastrous press conference on Friday night blaming Trump for the Chicago fiasco and adding Neil Bush and the Jeb donors to his campaign. No one is going to poll to see how those two events are going to affect the race, but I think it’s gonna have an impact on the race. Who knows how many voters have fled the Cruz camp. It could be several thousand, tens of thousands, or more. It was a bad ending to the week for Cruz and it’s going to have a cumulative effect on his campaign going forward.

            • That is true and they did flee. But the media is not portraying that and that gives us the clue that they will commit fraud based on the media lie that Cruz is a viable candidate. The vote fraud crew will just rig the vote according to what is in the media. That will give them cover by proving an excuse as to why Cruz won a state that Trump in reality won.

              Unfortunately most of the American public are part of the media, attached at the hip and sucking on its breast. The people ARE how the media exists. It’s the monster the people have created. Take the people out of the equation and the phantom monster goes away.

              The problem is not the media: the problem are those who watch it, pay for it, and are in fact a part of it. The audience IS the problem. No audience, no play; no audience, no concert; no audience, no show.

              If you watch it you’re the problem. Media wouldn’t exist without people to watch it, but people would exist without the media.

              God help us all.

            I think Cruz’ support here in NC will be strongest among the rural evangelicals. They consider it their Christian duty to vote for the candidate that most aligns with their religious world-view. I know that many of them strongly favor Trump but they feel obligated to vote for Cruz. This weekend, I visited with a friend who is a retired preacher. He voted for Trump. His wife, although a Trump supporter, felt obliged to vote for Cruz. In rural NC, proselytizing candidates get the benefit of the doubt. Cruz has been counting on that base of support. He laid out his strategy to Rush Limbaugh some time ago, long before the primary season started. Rush who was talking about that conversation he had with Cruz last week on his show.

      There has been no campaign effort in NC until the past two weeks by Trump campaign in spite of numerous pleas to his campaign headquarters get the ball rolling in NC since October.

      Remember that not all people get involved in primaries, and many simply pay little attention until they GE, (and that goes for the entire USA.)

      This year it was especially important to get those people awake and aware that all MSM is lying about Trump. Do we still have time to do that across the state, with Trump campaign offices in NC barely started?

      It serves no purpose to call people mind-numbingly stupid, when by far most are just trying to live day to day, feed and care for their families, and moving in the same way all of the silent majority were less than a year ago!

      Trump’s numbers are fine given the entire Democratic AND Republican machines are out to get him. We all wanted him to win every state with a majority vote and blow away the competition, but that’s just not how it happens. I grew up in DC, got my degree in Political Science and have been writing about politics for a few years, and history tells me as badly as I wanted him to run the table, it just doesn’t happen.

      The only states that Trump is losing are the states he should lose, and trust me, they are the right states. The rock-ribbbed religious, conservative Republicans live in Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Idaho ….. (catching a theme?) These won’t be Trump supporters and no one ever thought they would be. HOWEVER, These states will vote Republican regardless of the nominee come November, so in the long run Trump will get them anyway.

      The thing to look at is where he IS winning. Hawaii has very liberal Republicans. Same with Vermont. And he also is winning in the evangelical south. No one else can do that. And come November, Trump will be competitive in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and others. If traditional Republican states vote for The Donald as expected, he could pull off some amazing upsets and win.

      That said, he currently has the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and the Mainstream media (not to mention the majority of “conservative” websites) against him. Even when he wins he loses. If he survives the next week-to-10-days, he’s a lock. Worse case scenario is to not get enough delegates and go into Cleveland leading but not winning. And if that’s the worst case, that’s still pretty good.

      What we have to see is if he’s willing to fund a 3rd party run. If the Republicans don’t believe he’ll do it, they will continue to pound him and drive him out of the race. But if they believe he will run 3rd party, they will be less likely to blow up the party.

      If he becomes more mainstream to stop the craziness in the rallies, he loses his uniqueness and some of his strongest supporters will waver. So it’s best to keep on doing what he’s doing and trust the American people to do the right thing.

              The NC Republican Party has done everything in their power to prevent Trump from winning. We have not eradicated all the entrenched Dems/RINOS-it’s going to take a while to clean out the snakes, we just have to systematically rout them out.
              Unfortunately we have a lot of die hard liberals moving here and entrenching themselves in local politics and liberal college students are another factor.
              I believe Trump will persevere, but doubt it will be a landslide.

        Relax. We are fighting a multi-front war. Ohio is an odd place to get accurate data, and the polls switched “magically” from Trump being ahead to Trump behing behind in the space of a few hours yesterday — for polls that were conducted last week! Someone is maniuplating data for the polls — but we can’t be distracted. The splitter strategy is to make a non-establishment frontrunner like Trump fight fires in many states. He’s doing well in Florida, North Carolina, Illinois — and not so sure about Ohio at the moment . . .

          A vote for Donald Trump is a vote to keep the USA. 🇺🇸To keep it sovereign. To keep it strong. To keep it solvent.

          All others are puppets who will not hesitate to continue to undermine USA sovereignty in every way: by bringing in illegals, jihadis; failing to secure borders; selling out our jobs;
          Ignoring our infrastructure bridges/highways/airports/buildings; sending away our big companies while stopping small start-up companies=less jobs and less small business opportunities.

        NC Republican Party has been very tricky.

        First year the NC voter needs ID cards. (A good thing but was meant to help heb against dems not for altruistic reasons.) But this fact has NOT been widely advertised. Wonder how many will go to polls without photo ID just because they didn’t know they need it with them?

        Although Congressmen might be on the ballots, the March votes won’t count! NC decided a last minute change of district boundaries would be fun in a Presidential election year. The state SEC is reviewing that. So ANOTHER primary date just for congress is planned in June. People may not be aware that their congress votes on March 15 are useless. And some won’t even know who their congress-person IS until the new boundaries are settled.

        And even though it is generally true that a March 15 primary means winner take all, NC managed to get a March 15 primary but still have proportional instead.

        Do not underestimate the NC GOPe for tricks and cheats.

          Hey KBR .. I don’t know which part of NC you live in, but I have to say I have never seen such desperation as that displayed by the Nelson Dollar campaign. Dollar is a 6 term NC State House Representative for District 36, which includes Raleigh.

          I have been called (when I accidentally answered the phone) for 3 Dollar-leaning polls, constant TV and radio ads, but the print ads in my mailbox are actually hilarious! There were 4 in the mailbox, four, on Saturday, and my husband and I actually laugh when we get our mail saying, “Anybody else write us besides Nelson Dollar?”

          All of this advertising must be costing YUGE dollars, and I do wonder who is providing to him. GOPe no doubt.

            That’s how I’m looking at things in my area. I asked McCrory to come out with a pro Trump statement or an endorsement. He didn’t. I’m voting primary for his republican opponent.

            “When you have publically endorsed Donald J Trump for president, please do not hesitate to write back for my support.”

            Not one of them did. So I am voting only for their challengers.

    It saddens me that a number of voters say that they will vote for Kasich or Cruz when it is so clear neither one stands a chance to win the primaries or the general election. Kasich: no elegibility in PA, pro-amnesty, Ohio Gov. living elsewhere for the past year, and lying about Ohio’s economy and job creation there when the collapse of the oil industry and shut down of large companies is significantly reversing those trends. Cruz: cheated in Texas and all caucus states, lies like there is no tomorrow,stands no chance in any of the pending large states. It’s hard to swallow that so many citizens are so poorly informed about the background and motives of candidates, yet contribute to the final decision.

    All states are important! NC has a larger amount of delegates but they are proportional whereas Ohio is winner take all. That is why the focus has been on Ohio. And Ohio is the last best hope to deny Trump. Win Ohio and it is all over but the crying for the GOP-E. If Trump loses Ohio he loses 66 delegates. If Trump loses NC he still picks up delegates diue to proportion. That is why the focus has been Ohio over NC. And maybe internal polling shows NC much more favorable to Trump than Ohio. Winning Ohio is coupe de grace of the GOP-e.

    I am not a fan of PPP polling because it is a left-leaning poll. However, this poll’s results seems to coincide with what I heard on television last week that Trump is up in N.C. by an average of 11 points in the overall polls. One big bonus that Trump has going for him is that the state now has a voter I.D. law. Before that, there were numerous reports of voter fraud, especially during the 2008 campaign.

    Trump has already said his VP pick would not be an outsider unless he has changed his mind on that. That NC poll, when you break those stats down especially with early voters, looks pretty good. I heard on the news over the weekend that early turnout in this state (NC) was kind of low. I voted a week ago today. I voted at the local board of elections in this county and the volunteers do such a wonderful job there. They are so helpful with the touch screen machines. As far as the PPP poll overall, I saw it over at RCP this morning. I kind of take the polls that are (R) or (D) leaning as this PPP poll is, with a grain of salt. I like to see polls that don’t have an (R) or (D) slant to get a better idea of things but as we know at this point, it’s best to treat all polls that narrow so close to the primaries with a bit of suspicion. 😉

    It’s very important to understand the difference between ‘I’ and ‘we’ when interacting with other camps.

    ‘We’ and ‘our’ much more powerful in coalition building and engender in agreement. Pick any series of issues the other camps have that agree with our objectives of building a coalition whether they are social or want to conserve. Use keywords in conjunction with ‘we’ and ‘our’.

    Bernie voter for instance. … we agree on the need for social agreement of social security, support and healthcare for the poor and disabled.

    “We (arms spread) need to come together folks (hands together)”

    Donald, can they hear us now?

    “Donald Trump and his supporters are conservative on our border. We are conservative on our healthcare, our social security and our commitment to providing the poor and disabled support and care.

    We are conservative on our culture and our language folks … because to have a multicultural world we need to conserve ‘OUR’ culture and we demand respect for that as we respect peaceful cultures all over the world.

    We are conservative on opportunity and prosperity for ALL Americans … and those who seek to be good Americans.

    We are conservative on free world trade. …. that’s another series of deals we will make … and I’m the best.

      “Messaging from Sanders and Trump on this issue varies greatly – Trump focuses on jobs moving overseas while “socialist” Sanders uses the 1% as the framework for talking about economic inequality.
      “But both candidates appear to have been effective in convincing voters that they ‘“get it”. Another CNN/ORC poll released at the end of February found that 46% of Republicans said Trump, better than any other candidate, understands the problems facing them personally. And 48% of Democrats said the same about Sanders.
      “Many respondents to the Guardian’s call-out also expressed the sentiment that Sanders and Trump get voters’ economic pain. Several said they found an affinity between the two candidates’ take on the economy, particularly trade.”
