***2016 LiveWire*** Tar Heel State Showdown: Clinton, Obama Campaign in NC; Trump to Hold Evening Rally

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton

CNN reporter Michelle Kosinski even said the timing seemed to be “perfect” for Obama and Clinton. Though the mainstream press have incessantly maligned Trump throughout the election cycle, voters still think he is more honest and trustworthy than Clinton by a significant margin: From our latest NBC/WSJ poll, the honest/straightforward numbers for Clinton v.
