    A taxpayer-funded political science professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has concluded that political conditions in North Carolina are comparable to political conditions in totalitarian nations such as Cuba, Venezuela and Iran because Republicans are too politically successful. The professor, Andrew Reynolds, aired his 936-word grievance last week in The News & Observer, a newspaper out of Raleigh. North Carolina “can no longer be classified as a full democracy,” Reynolds declares, because the statewide Republican Party has been too successful at winning the state’s winner-take-all elections. The winner-take-all system — which is excessively common throughout the...

A GKN Driveline facility in Maiden will get almost half of the jobs (143) and more than 60% of the investment ($110 million). It’s the second big expansion at the Maiden plant in two years as GKN works to meet demand for new technology in automobile drivetrain design.

    In the just released EIP report, North Carolina’s overall electoral integrity score of 58/100 for the 2016 election places us alongside authoritarian states and pseudo-democracies like Cuba, Indonesia and Sierra Leone. If it were a nation state, North Carolina would rank right in the middle of the global league table – a deeply flawed, partly free democracy that is only slightly ahead of the failed democracies that constitute much of the developing world.

Outgoing Governor Pat McCrory had announced that he would call a special session to repeal HB2, pursuant to Charlotte repealing the ordinance – and agreement that all parties seemed to agree with.

Namely, how will whites, especially those with a college degree, vote? For all the hype about Trump’s strength with white voters this year, he actually underperforms Romney with that group in many polls. Case in point: Romney won whites nationally by 20 in 2012 but Trump led them by just 17 in the final Fox News poll. If Hillary holds more or less steady in black support from 2012 and gets a boost in Latino votes and...

Unaffiliated votes are the biggest surprise this time as 35% more of them early voting relative to 2016. It's a long blog, but towards the end is a most interesting find, based on Dr. Bitzer's analysis: "Finally, I was interested in the rise of the unaffiliated voter and if they had participated in the state's March 2016 presidential primary election in one of the two...
