Winston-Salem, North Carolina (CNN)Jamie Oswald doesn't like President Donald Trump's tone, his temper or his tweets, but she hasn't ruled out voting for him this fall.

Oswald is one of more than 1. 3 million new voters who have registered in North Carolina since 2016, when Trump narrowly won the state by about 173,000 votes.

"The pandemic has nothing to do with politics, but it ihas everything to do with politics," said David Plyler, chairman of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners, who drew criticism from some fellow Republicans earlier this week after suggesting Trump should follow state law and wear a mask when he arrived here for a rally.

The revelations that the President made to Woodward, several women said, did not change their view about Trump.

"Four years ago, President Trump wasn't my first, second, third or fourth choice," she said, noting she was uncertain whether he would be a true conservative or live up to his word, which she believes he has.

He said he believes Trump is trying to intimidate voters.

In one interview after another, Republican voters said they worried about the potential for voter fraud and said they intended to cast their ballots in person.

As he walked into a Trump rally here this week, which marked the first time he would see the President in person, he said he believed Trump had done "an above average job, given the circumstances and the challenges he's had. "

The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee have collectively knocked on nearly 1 million doors and made six million phone calls across North Carolina this year, party officials say, along with organizing supporters at the President's scaled-back rallies.

A downtown business owner here, who did not want to be identified by name, said he has rarely voted in presidential races, but he would cast his ballot for Biden in hopes of blocking Trump from winning a second term.

She said she had never done much more than vote, but she has spent most of the last four years volunteering with the county Democratic Party, with an eye toward defeating Trump.
