Poll-itics: President Obama Now Leading Romney in North Carolina


DKos links us to a couple of good news polls from North Carolina:

A new High Point University/Fox 8 Poll finds that President Barack Obama now has a slight lead over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in North Carolina, though race remains tight.

According to results released Thursday, 46 percent of North Carolina registered voters who participated in the poll said they would vote for Obama if the election were held today, compared to 43 percent who said they would vote for Romney. 

And from right-leaning Purple Strategies:

North Carolina (Obama +2): Obama currently holds a small lead, 48% to 46%. There is a relatively strong 18-point gender gap in the state, with men favoring Romney by 8 points, and women favoring Obama by 10.
