The good news is that after running within a few percentage points of each other most of the summer in North Carolina, The Survey USA polls shows John McCain has broken out and now holds a 20 point lead over Barack Obama here. The bad news is that this most likely means the Tarheel State won’t be seeing a visit from the GOP ticket anytime soon. I guess I’ll have to drive to Virginia if I want to see McCain-Palin live. You can follow the state polls on this page at Real Clear Politics.
Update: Speaking of NC, tonight at 8:00 ET I will be on Right Wing News Radio with my fellow North Carolinian, John Hawkins.
