Obama looks to South in bid to help keep his job
Obama looks to the South to bolster 2012 re-election campaign
By The Associated Press

JAMESTOWN, N.C. (AP) ' North Carolina and Virginia are two southern states at the heart of President Barack Obama's re-election strategy.

Obama won the states in a surprise in 2008 and his campaign is now doubling down in the region, hoping to turn to changing demographics as a way to offset potential losses in traditional swing states.

The president is in the middle of a three-day bus trip through North Carolina and Virginia even as polls show his challenges there. A recent Elon University poll put the president's approval rating in North Carolina at 42 percent and a Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-uh-pee-ak) University poll had it at 45 percent in Virginia.

Democrats are keying on the region. The party will hold its convention in Charlotte, N.C., next summer.
