The Hill Finance 2 months ago

A new poll out Wednesday finds trailing the top three Democratic White House hopefuls in North Carolina, which the president carried by nearly 4 points in 2016.

The new survey from left-leaning Public Policy Polling found former Vice President with a 5 point lead, 51-46, over Trump. Sens. (D-Mass.) and (I-Vt.) each hold a 3 point lead over the president, which falls just inside the poll's margin of error.

The survey found Trump tied with Sen. (D-Calif.) at 47 percent support each, and the president edging South Bend, Ind., Mayor 47-46.

Republicans will hold their nominating convention in Charlotte next year. Former President Obama won the Tarheel State in 2008, but the state has gone for the Republican presidential candidate in every other election since 1980, including for against Obama in 2012.

Trump’s job approval in the state is higher than it is nationally, at 46 percent positive and 51 percent negative. Voters in the state are split on impeachment in the survey, with 48 percent supporting the inquiry and 48 percent opposing. 

In the state's Democratic primary, Biden holds a healthy lead with 39 percent support, followed by Warren at 22, Buttigieg at 9 and Sanders at 3.

North Carolina’s primary will take place on March 3, or Super Tuesday.

The Public Policy Polling survey of 963 voters in North Carolina was conducted between Oct. 4-6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
