Carol Fentiman has a volunteer job at the library in Hendersonville, N.C. North Carolina’s population has nearly doubled since 1970, fueled by an economic renaissance built around banking, health care, technology and widely regarded universities.

She is the kind of voter who helped make Barack Obama the first Democratic presidential nominee to win here since 1976.
