North Carolina is set to vote on Super Tuesday, when campaigns will be stretched thin across a number of high-delegate states including California and Texas, as well as nearly a dozen others.

The Meredith College poll was conducted with a population of 1,024 registered voters between Feb. 16-24. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.
