Just in from Meredith College Polling:
Former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Trump in North Carolina, according to a new Meredith College poll released on Friday, giving the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee an early edge in a key battleground state.
The poll shows Biden with roughly 47 percent support in North Carolina. Trump trails him at about 40 percent.
Trump carried the state in the 2016 presidential election by fewer than 4 points. And before that, Mitt Romney beat former President Obama there in 2012 after Obama won it during his first White House bid in 2008.
NORTH CAROLINA WH’2020 poll (Meredith College):
Trump 41 approve, 53 disapprove.
Who do you trust to reopen state?
Gov. Cooper 63
