RALEIGH – A Civitas poll of North Carolina unaffiliated voters found that Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head match up, 38-28.

Civitas President Francis De Luca said, “Unaffiliated voters indicate they are less certain about who they’ll end up voting for compared to this time in 2012. But while a majority of them have not decided on a candidate, it is clear that of the ones that have, they favor Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton and Gary Johnson.”
He continued, “All eyes should be on North Carolina unaffiliated voters, the fastest growing segment of the North Carolina electorate, and our poll shows that while compared to 2012, over half have not decided, those that have decided clearly favor Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.” He continued, “With that being said, this voting bloc is less than enamored with either candidate of the two major parties.”

Vote Evan McMullin on Independent Ticket. He is the better choice for Americans. Not Clinton and NEVER TRUMP!!!
I prwdict Trump will not win North Carolina. Far too many real Republucans and Conservatives are #FedUp with the Corruption in our State GOP .
This Republican is voting third party on Potus, Kicking Liberal Senator Burr to the curb. Supporting Pat, Dan Buck, Causey and Edmonds for Supreme Court.
Hopefully we will lose Burr and with him Roby Hayes and the corrupt State GOP officer’s who play dirty.
Keep on predicting Tilly.The last 2 Gimmedat Governors should be in prison.Easley would be except for a plea bargain.How about giving us some examples of this corruption.McCory came in to office and the state had a big deficit and know we have a surplus.We are one of the leading states for adding businesses.We have added over 300,000 jobs with the worst POTUS in history.I think you are a delusional Democrat,not a Republican.
Nostradmus has already predicted that it is impossioble to trump a Clinton; Hillary 2016!!!

Donald Trump will make a GREAT President
Mike Pence super-super Vice-President
No way Burr loses, his opponent is awful. At least Kay Hagen could give a somewhat decent speech. As for President, I just hope Trump wins. As for Governor I’m supporting Pat all the way. But I got to be honest, while I’m confident Burr will win I’m concerned about Trump and McCrory
I have never been so fearful for our democracy in my life. The United States that we know and love will be destroyed if Trump wins. This is a man that admires the dictator Putin and keeps Hitlers speeches and writings by his bedside.

I am a retired Navy Chiefs wife whom he served our country proudly for 20 years. I am pretty sure if he did what Hillary did he would still be in jail. He had a top secret clearance. How can she get away with this. I am definitely voting for Trump/Pence. We need a change in our country. There is no Respect for anything or anyone. I am registered as Democrat and was for Bernie
