Presidential Race — Aug. 2016 Flash Poll

August 4, 2016



Our recent flash poll asked NC voters who they preferred in the presidential race. We asked:

If the election for President of the United States were today, and you were filling out your ballot right now, who would you vote for? Republican Donald Trump? Democrat Hillary Clinton? Or Libertarian Gary Johnson?
46%  Trump (R)
42%  Clinton (D)
6%    Johnson (L)
7%     Undecided

SurveyUSA interviewed 400 likely November voters from the entire state of North Carolina 07/31/16 through 08/02/16 using blended sample, mixed mode. Respondents reachable on a home telephone were interviewed on their home telephone in the recorded voice of a professional announcer, using Registration-list Based Sample (RBS) from Aristotle of Washington, DC. Respondents not reachable on a home telephone were shown a questionnaire on their smartphone, tablet or other electronic device.

Crosstabs are available here.
