#ncpol: Saving Private McCrory

I have to be honest — the polling so far does not look good for our Republican governor.  It’s been a while since we’ve seen a survey showing him on top.  And those most recent two that did came from his buddies at Civitas. Roy…

#ncgov: WHO approved THIS ?????

Governor Pat McCrory’s reelection campaign has provided us with many a face-palm moment.  And yet there’s another one on the horizon.  SOMEBODY in that camp OKed the governor participating in a debate on October 11 moderated by Chuck Todd, host of Meet The Press.  …

#NCGOV: The tale of the $$$$, by county

WBTV out of Charlotte has a heck of an interesting graphic.  They’ve broken down the latest fundraising totals for the two major candidates for governor, county-by-county. If the map on the linked page has any correlation to standing in the polls, Team McCrory really has…

Medicaid: That GIANT sucking sound

Roy Cooper sees the expansion of Medicaid as a “job creation” tool.  In 1992, Ross Perot talked about that giant sucking sound produced from NAFTA taking all our jobs to Mexico.  In 2016, Medicaid is the giant sucking sound stifling economic growth in our state…

PPP: #NCGOV race (still) TIED

I know. I know. We are talking here about the crowd that gave us ‘Deez Nuts.’   According to Public Policy Polling, the race for North Carolina governor is basically right where it was ONE MONTH AGO.  They have McCrory and Cooper each at 41%, while…

Polls show problems for Burr & McCrory (But, hey. We fired Hasan!!!)

The Civitas Institute — a subsidiary of Variety Wholesalers and The McCrory for Governor campaign — has put out a new poll that should be raising red flags for all of those smug NCGOPe types strutting around all smug about just having fired a black…
