North Carolina: In Play?

The folks at FiveThirtyEight are doing a state-by-state rundown of how the fall race will play and on Friday got around to North Carolina. I find nothing to quarrel with in this analysis. This’ll be an interesting race. NC has been GOP territory since the Carter years, but the cities are grabbing an increasing share of its population and most of the folks coming here new, making them potentially fertile ground for Obama. Chances are that McCain still takes it, but it’ll be a battle, and if Obama somehow breaks through, it’s game over.
