Werl, I certainly think that The Obamaniac sank his chances of winning North Carolina's electoral votes. And the Presidential Election is ALL ABOUT winnning electoral votes.

More good news: "In each of North Carolina's five largest cities, voters in majority-black precincts rejected the measure: Charlotte (52 percent), Raleigh (51 percent), Greensboro (54 percent), Winston-Salem (55 percent), and Durham (65 percent).
