If Donald Trump is going to have any shot at all at winning on November 8th, North Carolina is an absolute must-win state.
The typically Republican-leaning state, albeit one that went for Obama in 2008, hasn’t exactly been leaning Republican this cycle.
Hillary Clinton’s significant lead there had been tightening even before last Friday’s revelations that the FBI was reopening their investigation into her private email server. The Elon University poll, conducted last Sunday through Thursday, showed Trump and Clinton in a dead heat at 44 percent.
And now, in a swift kick in the rear to those who thought the FBI news wouldn’t make a difference, a brand new poll conducted by WRAL News via SurveyUSA now has Trump with a seven-point lead over his Democratic rival, 51 to 44 percent.
The poll of 659 people who have already voted or plan to vote was conducted Friday through Monday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
Just three weeks ago, the same poll had Clinton leading Trump by two points, 46 to 44 percent.
Among other good signs for Trump is the fact that he managed to cut Clinton’s previous 12-point lead among women down to just 7 points as well as increase his lead among male voters from 9 to 23 points.
