    I have been posting daily reports on North Carolina early voting numbers. Based upon a review of the numbers, I think it is probable that Trump will win NC by double the 3.8 points he won by in 2016. Check out this golden nugget in the North Carolina early vote numbers: 2016—per CNN exit polling, 70% of the 2016 NC electorate was white, 30% non-white. Breaking this 70% white NC vote down by education: 37% of 2016 NC white voters had a college degree, 30% did not have a college degree. 2020—73% of the current early votes are by white...

    After 2016, it’s hard to have a lot of faith in the polls, so the question is, how do we assess the state of the race? In 2016, most state polls were as bad as national polls, and cherrypicking specific polls isn’t a great option either, as it lends itself to confirmation bias. So, in many ways, the best thing we can use to judge the state of the race is to analyze early-voting statistics. According to Gallup 62 percent of Democrat and 28 percent of Republican voters plan to vote early this year when they otherwise have been only...

    Republicans cut more than one percentage point off of the Democrats' early voting lead in NC yesterday. The Democrat EV lead was cut to roughly 285K, as Republicans net-gained just under 16K votes yesterday. Dem--1,493,832--(38.62%)--(+70K votes) Rep--1,208,633--(30.92%)--(+85.5K votes) Una--1,146,929--(29.65%)--(+78K votes) The black share of the early vote electorate dropped for the 4th straight day, from 20.06% to 19.78%. Interestingly, "unaffiliated" voters out-voted Democrats yesterday. As I have noted many times, in 2016, Democrats LOST NC despite having a 310K early vote lead going into election day. Republicans are on pace to cut the Dem lead down to around 230K--ish. Democrats...

    The Supreme Court dealt a blow to Republicans in battleground states Pennsylvania and North Carolina in a pair of emergency election appeals Wednesday night. In the Pennsylvania case, the Court left in place the state's three-day grace period for ballots received after Election Day, but several justices indicated they could revisit the issue after Nov. 3 if necessary. In the North Carolina case, the justices outright rejected a Republican bid to shorten the state's mail-in ballot deadline from nine days to three after Election Day. ...

    The Supreme Court late Wednesday ruled to allow absentee ballots received up to nine days after Election Day on Nov. 3 to be counted in North Carolina.

    Earlier in the day, in a defeat for Republicans, the court declined to take another look, on a fast track, at the issue of late arriving mail ballots in Pennsylvania. The Supreme Court late Wednesday declined to block lower court rulings that allow six extra days for accepting ballots sent by mail in North Carolina.

    North Carolina GOP again asks Supreme Court to block mail ballot extension North Carolina Republicans on Wednesday filed a second request to the Supreme Court asking justices to block a six-day mail ballot due date extension in the key battleground state. The latest effort seeks the reversal of North Carolina’s top state court, while a similar petition filed last week by President Trump’s reelection campaign and state GOP members is aimed at blocking lower federal court rulings that relaxed the received-by deadline for mail ballots. Both requests are now pending before the Supreme Court, which after the arrival Tuesday of...

    New early voting data showed Democrats failing to hit their mark in several battleground states, giving Trump campaign officials more reasons for optimism Tuesday as President Trump rallied voters in key Midwestern states and Democrat Joseph R. Biden made a play for traditionally red Georgia. In Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona, Democrats are falling short of their target of 70% of early votes cast either in-person or by mail. That’s the lead they hoped to build up to stave off an expected higher Republican turnout on Election Day.“The Democrats have not opened up a large enough lead in...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - With one week until the election, polling shows North Carolina’s closely watched Senate race tightening. In early October, the RealClearPolitics average of polling in the race showed Democrat Cal Cunningham leading incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (R) by five to six percentage points. That’s dropped to 1.8 points on average in the final days of the campaign. “There has been an erosion in Cunningham’s numbers,” said Dr. Andrew Taylor, political analyst at N.C. State University. “It’s hard to attribute it to much other than the scandal surrounding Cunningham.” Control of the U.S. Senate could hinge on which...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE)- Charlotte could be facing a big blow to the banking industry. Wells Fargo is expected to announce major layoffs across the board on Tuesday. Thousands across the entire company could get the pink slip and bank insiders tell WJZY that many of those cuts will happen in the Queen City. More than 27,000 people in the Charlotte area work for Wells Fargo. It’s the city’s second largest employer. In July, the bank’s chief executive said it may need to cut expenses by more than $10 billion as it restructures away from a retail bank.

    Raleigh, N.C. — Judge Amy Coney Barrett is expected to be sworn in as a U.S. Supreme Court justice shortly after the U.S. Senate confirms her nomination on Monday night, and a North Carolina case could be among the first before the court with her as a member. Absentee ballots have been the focus of a fierce legal fight in North Carolina for weeks, following the State Board of Elections' decision to try to settle some lawsuits by changing the rules for voting by mail. While courts have dealt with the problem of fixing ballots that were mailed without the...

    Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart Confession: I rarely watch conservative, or so-called conservative, news sites. You can get some information that way, but I find it much more instructive to watch the reactions of liberals to the stories of the day. That is an instant indicator of who is winning and losing. For example, if the Washington Post says “Trump must change tone or face loss,” you know that Trump’s tone is deadly effective. Or, if Politico headlines “Some Senator Say McConnell Moving Too Fast on Barrett Nomination,” you know that Yertle is moving at light speed...

    Good news and bad news: Bad news: Republicans were out-voted yesterday in early voting, albeit by only 2K votes. Good news: Yesterday (Sunday), should have been the Democrats best day of early voting, with "souls to the polls" and massive weekend GOTV drives. Republicans actually won "souls to the polls" WEEKEND by 1K votes. The Democrats have cannibalized their election day vote. They are running out of "souls" to bring to the polls.
