Analysis of PPP Polling numbers by Seth Effron:
Based on early voting turnout and polling results from Public Policy Polling, those opposing Amendment One have an uphill battle today – mostly because of the astonishingly near unanimous support of the amendment from Republicans. The facts -- there were 260,068 Democratic Party ballots cast in early voting (including registered Democrats and unaffiliateds who cast Democratic Party ballots) and 209,656 Republican Party ballots cast (including registered Republicans and unaffiliateds who cast GOP ballots). Public Policy Polling said 40 percent of the Democrats would vote FOR the amendment and 53 percent would vote against it. The poll has 80 percent of Republicans voting for the amendment and just 16 percent voting against it.
It's a sad day when I feel ashamed of 40% of my own Party. It's not over yet, and we might just be surprised. But it's plain (to me) that the North Carolina Democratic Party has a long way to go.
