NC in top ten most popular US states

According to the Raleigh News and Observer, If North Carolina were a presidential candidate, it would be a contender.

It has high favorables, low negatives, and is very strong in the African-American community.

So says a new survey by Public Policy Polling, a firm based in Raleigh that conducted a national poll that asked Americans what their favorite state was. Their favorite was Hawaii. Their least favorite was California.

But North Carolina made the top 10, tied with Pennsylvania, with a favorable rating of 40 percent and an unfavorable rating of 11 percent. The top 10 were Hawaii, Colorado, Tennessee, South Dakota, Virginia, Montana, Alaska, Oregon, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. The bottom five were California, Illinois, New Jersey, Mississippi and Utah.
