RALEIGH – Polls, especially ones conducted far out from an actual election, should always be taken with a grain of salt or two. After all, if polls were accurate we’d be enduring the presidency of Hillary Clinton right now. That being said, a new poll from Emerson College puts former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump by double digits among North Carolina voters.
From The Hill:
“The Emerson College survey finds Biden ahead of Trump by 12 points, 56 percent to 44 percent. Three out of the four other top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination also lead Trump in the Tar Heel State, with the exception of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who is tied with the president at 50 percent support.
The poll found Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) holding a 54-46 advantage over Trump, while South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) leads by a 52-48 margin. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) leads Trump 51 to 49, within the survey’s margin of error. […]”
Take it for what it’s worth, which, judging by the suggestion that socialist Bernie Sanders is leading a sitting U.S. President in the Old North State by eight points , is not very much.
