PPP Polling: Obama narrowly leads Huckabee, Romney, Gingrich in N.C.

Little has changed since PPP polled the presidential race in North Carolina last month. Tar Heels are split on President Obama’s job performance, with 49% approving and 48% disapproving, roughly identical to last month’s 48-46 spread. Accordingly, the president barely noses ahead of his two leading potential challengers, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney.

Obama tops Huckabee, 48-47, essentially the same as the 45-45 tie in the March poll.
The president beats Romney, 47-44, also very similar to March’s 44-42 margin; Newt Gingrich, 49-45 (47-42); Sarah Palin, 52-40 (51-40); and Donald Trump, 51-39. This is the first time Trump has been tested.
Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:

Mike Huckabee 42/37/21 (+5)
Mitt Romney 31/44/25 (-13)
Newt Gingrich 31/50/20 (-19)
Sarah Palin 33/60/8 (-27)
Donald Trump 27/62/11 (-35)

Head-to-Head: (Obama/Candidate/Undecided)

Mike Huckabee 48/47/6 (-1)
