Thomas Schaller, Political Science, in The Huffington Post

In a recent Huffington Post article on President Obama’s competitiveness in North Carolina in 2012 and the decision to hold the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, Tom Schaller, associate professor of political science, commented, “I’m willing to go double or nothing that, barring a disastrous GOP nominee or campaign, Obama will not repeat in the Tar Heel state in 2012.” Schaller argued that Ohio will be more critical to the election for Obama and “the Charlotte choice can’t hurt, but it won’t help that much.” Schaller is author of “Whistling Past Dixie: How Democrats Can Win Without the South.”
