Tuesday was primary day in North Carolina, and although President Barack Obama faced no competition on the Democratic ballot, he was not the choice of approximately 20 percent of Democrats who cast ballots.
With all 100 counties reporting, Obama secured 79.2 percent of the Democratic primary vote and “no preference” registered at 20.8 percent, according to preliminary results posted on the website of the North Carolina State Board of Elections.
This outcome is a potential embarrassment to Obama in the state that will host this year’s Democratic National Convention.
The election attracted approximately one million Democratic voters, according to the preliminary results.
