Presidential Flash Poll: North Carolina 2/2/15

Voter Gravity is now releasing a flash poll each week. (Check out last week’s Iowa poll here.) We conducted this week’s flash poll in North Carolina. Those surveyed were GOP primary voters who had voted in the last 4 primaries: 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. Our purpose in doing these snapshots is to gauge how the Republican base feels about potential GOP nominees. We’re using Voter Gravity’s touchstone survey feature, which allows hundreds of thousands of voters to instantly take telephone surveys, and bring the results into any Voter Gravity account for analysis.

There were 4,102 respondents in this poll. Some points of interest: Walker continues to perform very well, as he has in virtually every poll being conducted at the moment. Carly Fiorina and Bobby Jindal have some work to do, while Ben Carson polled ahead of Rand Paul and Marco Rubio. Only 12% said ‘Other’ in this poll.

Ted Cruz and Chris Christie were not listed as options in this poll as we dropped the three lowest vote getters from last week’s poll, and we’ll do the same for the next poll: we’ll drop the lowest three and add Cruz, Christie and likely Rick Santorum. We might even throw in Sarah Palin in a future poll. Our hope is that eventually we’ll get to a consensus top eight potentials in the upcoming weeks and months and then track their progress as we get into the spring and summer.
