(CNN) - It appears the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination is tightening up in North Carolina.
A new CNN poll of polls released Sunday suggests Senator Barack Obama, D-Illinois, has the support of 50 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in North Carolina, with 42 percent backing Senator Hillary Clinton, D-New York, and 8 percent still undecided.
This eight point Obama margin is down from a nine point lead Obama held in Saturday’s CNN poll of polls and down from his recent double digit lead in the state.
187 delegates are up for grabs when North Carolina and Indiana hold primaries on Tuesday.
The CNN poll of polls is an average of the latest surveys in the state.
Biased, biased, biased!!! Shame on you CNN. You are on the wrong side of history with your Hilary. You have been writing negative stories on Obama even when convention wisdom, demands that there is nothing negative to write home about. You need to back to journalism schools. What a way to finish yourselves. Publish this if you have any decency.
IT SO SAD THAT NOW THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE FORCED TO ELECT AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PRESIDENT. WAKE UP AMERICA . WHAT HAPPEN TO THE BEST QUALIFIED PERSON.HAVEN'T WE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS GIMMICK.
just LIES, LIES, LIES
Did hear her speak today. Nothing but lies and promises she can't give. Healthcare. She failed that in 1992. Gas tax. She won't even be president to authorize it. Keep believing in all her empty promises. She gives what she gets….nothing!
Honkies- how about using some decent language Obama supporter?
Character counts. Much more so in the President. If Obama participated in Wright's church for twenty (2) years he can not say that he did not know. Obama is lying and denouncing his spiritual and inspirational leader (as he himself says in his book) just for political expediency. Obama turned against his own for personal gain. Character counts !!
You have given new meaning to the words:
"drinking the koolaid"
"in the tank"
"turning a deaf ear and a blind eye"
"Comments are moderated by CNN, in accordance with CNN COMMENT POLICY and may not appear on this blog until they have been reviewed and deemed appropriate for posting"
The fourth comment from the top must be an inside job or a joke in poor taste?
Now, can someone tell me who is going negative?
Obama, his preacher and his wife have caused more hate between blacks and whites than ever before. He is not uniting us at all, he has created such a divide that it will take years to get over. I rather have four more year of Bush than all this hatred.
Why does this not surprise me? I mean, voters gave Bush a second term, and look how that has turned out! I know that change can be scary, but it can also be enlightening, powerful, and downright positive. Let's not repeat the Clinton years, years of partisan gridlock, high price sleepovers and scandals, or the Bush years (McCain). Let's give the brilliant new guy a shot. He can only bring the country up!
obama obama, you have to be out your mind if you don't think obama will win on tuesday well my vote is for obama.
CNN IS NOT FAIR WHEN IT CONCERNS POSITIVE COMMENTS TOWARD OBAMA THAT IN ITSELF SHOULD BE A CALL FOR BIAS FAIR IMPUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The American voters are beginning to see the light - and see right through Obama, the snake oil salesman!
when you think about voting for clinton,think about this:
peter paul vs clinton
white gate- bill and his adulterous behavior
travel gate – when the clintons fired several of the people in his administration and gave those jobs to family and friends.
catle gate- when hilliary and bill committed fraud against those small business owners and took their life savings, whenothers invested theire retirement was taken and some of these people committed suicide.
last but not least when 900 hundred files went missing out of the white house when bill was impeached. so all of you hilliary supporters do our research. the clintons are still being investigated for corruption.
CNN IS NOT FAIR WHEN IT CONCERNS POSITIVE COMMENTS TOWARD OBAMA THAT IN ITSELF SHOULD BE A CALL FOR BIAS UNFAIR IMPUT THOUGHT TELECOMMINCATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And here they come ladies and gentleman the filly "
Flim Fam " and the stud "Yack a Lot" ! What a horse race of monstrous under expectations! Whose nose will slip under the wire of "America will lose " first ? Isn't it exciting! Gives me the hives!
. . . and a lot of Americans are beginning to wake up to the fact that Obama is nothing more than a snake oil salesman.
cnn please post my comments
CNN IS NOT FAIR WHEN IT CONCERNS POSITIVE COMMENTS TOWARD OBAMA THAT IN ITSELF SHOULD BE A CALL FOR BIAS UNFAIR IMPUT THROUGH TELECOMMINCATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't care that Obama is black – I care that he's green
ANY CANDIDATE THAT WOULD SPEND MILLIONS OF THEIR OWN MONEY FOR A JOB THAT ONLY PAYS 400,000 A YEAR TO ME IS EITHER CRAZY OR PLANS ON GETTING IT BACK BY ANY KIND OF MEANS. SO PEOPLE WHO VOTES FOR HILLARY BE CAREFUL. CAUSE IT HAS A REAL BAD SMELL TO IT AND ITS NOT ROSES THAT FOR SURE.
Can there be any doubt? Only to the uneducated!
Now Americans are finally beginning to THINK and really LISTEN. And what they're hearing and thinking says HILLARY CLINTON!
No CNN, you cannot conclude that the race is "tightening" merely because of a one-percent fluctuation in the so-called "poll of polls," when the polls themselves are only accurate to within 4 percentage points.
Didn't anyone at CNN every take a course in statistics?
Hillary will lose both Indiana and North Carolina, and then maybe she will do us all a favor and take a bow. Out.
Jon- What an arrogant post. Most of my friends and coworkers support Clinton. We are all professionals who don't see value in such comments and are quite frankly tired of hearing how Clinton supporters are uneducated. I follow the political process carefully and the more I see of Obama, the more I have fear of his indecisiveness and lofty talk. Most of the posts I read from Obama supporters are immature and offer to the conversation.
