Democratic convention makes NBC's top political story list

NBC News ranks the Democratic convention in Charlotte at the No. 2 political story in 2012 -- sitting behind only Mitt Romney's "47 percent" remark.

The reason from the story: "This year was another reminder that political conventions do matter in presidential contests. After the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C. -- which featured well-received speeches by First Lady Michelle Obama, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, former President Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama -- the Dem ticket got a noticeable bump in state and national polls. ...

NBC/Marist poll: Obama holds slight edge, McCrory cruising in North Carolina

A new NBC News/Marist poll released Thursday shows the presidential race in North Carolina deadlocked and Republican Pat McCrory cruising with a comfortable lead in the governor's race.

President Barack Obama received 48 percent to Mitt Romney's 46 percent among likely voters and held a 49-45 advantage among registered voters. The two-point margin is within the poll's 3.1-point margin of error.

The Sept. 23-25 survey -- which include voters undecided but leaning toward a candidate -- is surely disappointing for Dalton given that his two weeks of TV advertising did not appear to help his cause. 

The circus is coming, Part I

The circus is coming! The circus is coming!

As a kid, Dome was supposed to go see the Barnum & Bailey/Ringling Brothers Circus with our grandparents in California, but a last-minute bout with the flu intervened.

Sure, there have been some who said that the band of drifters setting up a giant tent out by the highway was not necessarily the circus. (A religious revival, maybe?)

Not anymore. One of the two headline acts — Barack Obama — will be coming to Fayetteville and Charlotte on Wednesday, and a carnival barker is already setting up shop.

Which is all an elaborate way of saying that one of Dome's colleagues got an e-mail this morning from an NBC News reporter. 

She arrived this morning, and she'll be here through the primary.
