Early voting has begun in North Carolina, and the turnout is looking pretty good for Democrats. They are showing an eight-point advantage over Republicans in the state. Anything could happen in the 44 days left until the election, but early voter turnout has been a good predictor of final results in the last two elections.

Back in the 2012 election, Mitt Romney won the state of North Carolina by two points. Republicans had a 5-percent lead in early voter turnout that year. In the 2008 election, Democrats had an 11-point advantage in polling, and Obama won the state that year. This year, Democrats are showing an eight-point advantage in voter turnout, which could very well result in a Clinton victory in the state.

Although Democrat early voter turnout is higher than that of Republicans, unaffiliated voters, and others, a FiveThirtyEight election forecast shows Hillary Clinton having a 42-percent chance of winning the state in November. While this is less than the percentage showing in favor of Donald Trump, the national average predicts Hillary Clinton having a 60-percent chance of winning in the general election.

A New York Times election model shows Hillary Clinton’s numbers rising in North Carolina due to the early voting as well. She now has a 47-percent chance of winning the state.

As far as local government results in this election for North Carolina, it looks as though their current governor, Pat McCrory, could potentially lose his seat this November. According to a Public Policy Polling article, the GOP candidate is on his way to being beaten out by Democrat and North Carolina state Attorney General Roy Cooper.

Information in the PPP article had some interesting questions to ask some of the voters. One of the questions asked was if they had a chance to vote for four more years of Obama or a pivot to Trump’s policies, which would they prefer. An overwhelming majority of people surveyed said they would prefer Obama to Trump 62 percent to 5 percent. The people were then asked the same between Clinton and Trump, with Clinton taking the vote 50 to 48 percent.

Although most voters still see both candidates more unfavorably than favorably, all signs are pointing upward for Hillary in the state of North Carolina.
