New Poll Shows Trump Leading Biden In North Carolina

According to a new survey conducted by Emerson College Polling, former President Donald Trump leads Biden in North Carolina by three points.

The results, released on Wednesday, showed Trump receiving 47% of the votes and Biden receiving 44%, with the remaining 10% of North Carolinians undecided.

While many have speculated that independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. could cause Trump to lose the election, adding him to the polling made no difference in his numbers. Adding Kennedy, along with other independent candidates to the ballot, Trump received 46% of the votes, Biden 37%, and 6% total for independent candidates, while 11% were undecided.

The age of voters also influences their presidential choice, according to Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling.

“A majority of voters under 30 break for President Biden over Trump, 53% to 35%, along with a plurality of voters in their 30s, 47% to 40%,” Kimball said. “Voters in their 40s are evenly split: 45% support each candidate. Voters over 50 support Trump over Biden, 52% to 40%. In addition, independent voters in North Carolina break for Trump over Biden, 43% to 40%.”

The poll also asked North Carolina voters if Biden’s age had any impact on their decision, with 58% reporting that the president’s age raised doubts about his abilities, while 42% reported that his age was not a serious consideration.

According to the poll, Biden’s approval rating in North Carolina stands at 38%, while 54% disapprove of the job he’s doing.

Similar to other polls, Emerson College Polling also showed that the major issue affecting many voters is the economy. The results show that 36% of North Carolina voters were concerned about the health of the economy this election season. Next was healthcare at 14% and education at 12%.

Only 10% of voters saw immigration as the top issue and only 5% were more concerned with abortion access.

The poll also had a hypothetical election between Trump and Vice President Kamala Harris. As expected, Trump beat out Harris, receiving 50% of the vote to Harris’ 41%.

The survey was conducted between Feb. 14 and Feb. 16 using a sample of 1,000 registered voters.
