WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama stumped for last-minute votes in Indiana and North Carolina Friday ahead of the states' Tuesday primaries.

New polls show Clinton narrowing Obama's lead in North Carolina, once seen as an easy win for Obama.

Polling in Indiana shows the two candidates running dead even.

"We are seeing terrific support all across Indiana and all across North Carolina ... I have no doubt these are going to be tight races. This campaign has been tight throughout," Obama said in Indianapolis, Indiana, Friday morning.

"But I am very confident the American people are looking for the kind of truth telling and serious policy making that is going to have an affect on heir lives, and as long as I'm talking about the issues."

    It is hard to believe that there are still some people out there and that are not aware of Hillary being a liar and a fake. People are voting fo rher in hopes that they are giving Bill Clinton a third term. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Get real people! what are we? A dictatorship? no more Bushes and no more Clintons please! Obama is ready, willing and able and we need the change he and only he can bring to Washington. Please vote Obama and give him a chance to show us the way to a new way of doing business in Washington.

    With all of the talk and questions of Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright when is someone going to question Hillary about her ex pastor Rev. William Procanick? I think someone needs to question her about his Sexual abuse conviction of inappropriately touching a 7 year old girl. When is this going to be aired?

    Since we have to listen what Obama says?

    Why should we trust him?

    We don't need his change. First he has to change himself, and then maybe we can trust him with our country. The country we love and proud about.

    Hillary for president!!!!!!!!

    Indiana goes to Clinton! Why?

    Rep. will vote for her because she weak and play the same politics like John. John will win in Nov. if she is the Dem. Nom.

    Stand with HILLARY! She wil not let you down. I would love to see a Clinton/Edwards ticket.

    With obama most likely you are to see a Obama/Wright. I will vote for McCain if Obama is on the ticket at all.

    IN OTHER WORDS I WILL VOTE AGAINST OBAMA REGARDLESS.

    I do not know where CNN mumbers come from. Three new polls out of Indiana are as follows: Rasmussen Clinton is leading 46% to 41%, with 13% undecided. Public Policy Polling has Clinton %0% to 42%, with 8% undecided. Teleresearch Polling has 48% to 38%, with 14% undecided. All out of the margin of error. You also need to be reporting that a 400,000 AA group has send the DNC threathened, that if the super delegates wind up voting to give the nomination to Clinton they will punish the other Democrats in the general election. I voted in Texas and I voted in my primary for white, black and hispanic candidates and I am white. This entire process, which will include the general election, will be an election on race. The Democrats will lose, not only the President election, but up and down the ballot. I might even just "skip" voting.

    Son of a gun. Why don't you just get out of the democrate party and form your own party named" Farrahkan, Wright and Obama" party and run the campaign, and let Mr. CNN supports you and give you the second pillow. Let Mr. CNN twists the words that you are Mohammad from the Heaven comimg down to the earth to decimate all the infidels and suck blood from Mr. CNN, and to overthrow the U.S. government . Let the people of the stupid Americans vote. Then we will see if the stupid Americans are going to vote for your party or Republican party or democratic? If your "Trio" party win then we will submit all the wealth we have to you and call you as our "MASTER" sir. O.K

    because she didn't budget her money right. Now she wants to budget

    The delegate difference is more than 150 and Obama is the nominee no matter what happens in the remaining 9 primaries. However, it will be nicer if Obama win Indiana and we get big clebration on Wednesday...
    Come on Indiana... Let put and end to this primary and move on to the general election...

    NC- end the McCain edge! Vote for Obama he is the one who will win. A vote for Clinton is a vote that helps McCain.

    Time for HillBilly to GET OUT of this race. She can't win, everyone knows it, so stop pretending.

    Obama vs McCain = Democrat in the white house.

    I think the people of Indiana and North Carolina need to know more about Mrs. Clinton. We have heard all about the Rev. Wright situation but Clinton vs Paul gets no reporting at all. Hilary was talking about the media not being fair well it is time for the American people to learn about this. CNN it is time you start reporting on this that way the people really know who they are voting for.

    Dead Even? Unbelievable! Bill Clinton sells all our good paying jobs to China and makes 109 Million Dollars for his treason. Bill Clinton and his sleazy lobby groups bring deregulation laws that ruined the Airlines and communications industries. Bill Clintons weakness led to the 911 Terror Attacks. And now a Clinton is even in the polls to become a presidential candidate? Wow! maybe the news is right. Maybe the uneducated and ignorant really do vote all in favor for Hillary. What other possible explanation could there be?
