VIDEO: Charlotte election forecast

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 5:11 PM

As President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney compete for North Carolina's 15 electoral votes, the latest polls show Romney slightly ahead of Obama in North Carolina.

This morning, I went into the streets of Charlotte to talk to voters and get a CL voting forecast. In the Plaza Midwood neighborhood, hearts were frigid toward Romney; of 25 voters, only two said they voted Republican for any office. In west Charlotte, the polls seemed dry. At polls in the Mint Hill and Matthews area, it was raining Republicans, with a few sprinklings of shy Obama supporters. Mint Hill had the most animated supporters on both sides; of 25 voters, only five said they voted for Obama. There were no lines outside, but Democrats and Republicans stood in the frigid morning air discussing politics.
