(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.
Don't worry. CNN and it's biased and the Billary Hillbillies (closet racists) are trying to steal this for Hillary but the youth shall set us free!!
Why don't you print the eloquent article in the Charlotte Observer supporting Barack Obama or Tom Hanks' endorsement?
I wish the lead ducking lady would just amitt she can't win.
This is the same bunk that everyone was saying about Obama and Pennsylvania and look how it ended up. Polls are just that, polls, and anyone who banks on them being the truth are naive. What matters is how people vote on election day.
It is interesting that in Indiana the latest poll shows Obama up by 2 and there is no mention of that on CNN.
I don't need hope and change. I need job and bread. It seems Obama 's supporter cannot get the sittuation that this country in right now. Hope and change cannot help your bill.
What about the Indianna polls that show Obama slightly edging Clinton despite the rough week he's had. Folks go to RelclearPolitics.com for unbiased election info/polls. CNN is just disappointing at this point and its becoming a pattern especially the last few days before major primaries.
i will be voting for mccain ,if clinton steals this nomination from obama.not that i want another republican president,but,i'd rather have a numbskull in office ,rather than a president who lies over and over,just to get elected.i was deeply inspired by obama,and registered as an independent to vote for him,after taking a hiatus from bogus elections, [the last time i voted was when ross perot ran in '92] ,that only put the same old negative politicians back in the wh year after year.why do people keep putting do-nothing politicians in the highest office of our land?keep your $28 ,hillary.i don't sell my vote to anyone.
are you people serious? headline "narrowing". small print 9% to 8%????!?
Come on NC....don't be fooled by the Clinton's. Obama is our future and our truth! Barack doesn't just tell you what you want to hear he tells you like it is....if this country is to get fixed then we need to be done with the Bush's AND the Clinton's.
OBAMA for our FUTURE!
Come on home North Carolina! Together we can do it for Hillary!!!
Is a 1% decrease really a story? That's still well within the margin of error, and it could've just been a polling inconsistency.
Hillary needs to win the remaining 9 contests by an average of 70%. In early March her super delegate advantage was 56 – today it's 20. CNN's breathless pandering for Hillary aside, the 2008 Democratic Presidential nominee is Barack Obama. He will go on to beat the clueless warmonger by double-digits, even if McCain does choose Hillary as his running mate.
Vote for Hillary to save the democratic party. Vote for Obama to give the presidency to McCain.
Who cares? This race is over and the media is just trying to get ratings. Clinton could win by ten points in NC and still lose the over all primary race. The Dems just need to get together and start backing their pack leader and concentrate on Nov. Obama is the D's man.
hey,but CNN,why is it that every time I come around here, I only see news about Clinton?? are you trying to tell us that its only Clinton in this race??
how about you tell us about how she called economists that are against her gas tax holiday elitists??
here.."I'm not going to put my lot in with economists"... Clinton added....."this mindset where elite opinion is always on the side of doing things that really disadvantage the vast majority of Americans."
hope you publish this :)
and btw, im starting to doubt your polls :(
yeah right....she wish she can narrow it...lol
is the net work news media getting paid to keep wright story alive
Wow.. is this all CNN have for News. For a News organization that Claims to be the "Best" in News. Can you give us anything else?
If Hillary manages to pull off an upset in North Carolina, not saying this will happen, but if she does, she will win the nomination.
Hillary will win this one, along with Indiana... They are Her's for the taking. Go Hillary Super Jet.
I have already voted for Clinton this past week – I love that we can vote early. NC is going to be closer than you all think – I'm hoping Hillary will take it by, say, 7 votes! LOL
wow a 1 point change overnight...is that even a statistically significant change? this is not news. this is biased reporting.
