Obama and Romney tied in North Carolina
PPP's newest North Carolina poll finds Barack Obama and Mitt Romney tied at 48, representing a small shift in Obama's direction from a week and a half ago when Romney led 49-47. This now makes 27 out of 28 polls of the state PPP has conducted this cycle where the candidates have been within two points of each other.
Obama has built up a lead over the first week of the early voting period in the state. Among those who say they've already voted he's at 57% to 42% for Romney.
Don't let anyone tell you North Carolina isn't a swing state. And please, vote early. The media will have a harder time trying to write us off if the early vote keeps staying strongly Democratic. Have you voted?
