North Carolina: a Libertarian battleground state

Barack Obama only won North Carolina in 2008 by 14,000 votes.

Bob Barr, the Libertarian nominee that year, took 25,000 votes; he was presumably the spoiler for John McCain, because no one can seriously imagine him to have taken large numbers of votes from Obama.

In the Governor's race, Libertarian Michael Munger received nearly 121,000 votes, and in the Senate race, Libertarian Chris Cole garnered 131,000.

That's around 3% of the vote.

This year, Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Barbara Howe is polling at 7% of the vote already.

Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson, last week, was pollng there at 6%.

North Carolina libertarians are by and large left-libertarians.

This is a state in which we can prove that Libertarians are key players, but only if we keep the movement going.
