(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.
wolf...get off the rev. wright. let's hear about the economy, the two wars, iran, health car, anything, but the rev. who has nothing to do with what effects americans. PLEASE ADRESS THE ISSUES!!
Would someone end this circus! So freakin tired of the joke and spectacle it has become.
The winds of CHANGE are blowing...its going to be very interesting to see which way the wind blows....ITS DEFINITELY BLOWING DEMOCRATICS WAY!!!
This is so exciting..Keep it going Indiana and North Carolina!!!
There's so many way to make look positive for HRC but she she's the one needing a K.O. in the remaining primaries.
CNN blog moderators. Why do you not post my links defending the Clintons?
Hello American People!
Well, it seems that really the tide is turning for American people who Really Love and Take Care about our country, the United States of America!!!
God Bless America!!!
CNN blog moderators why are you not posting these links defending Sen. Clinton from the rumors and lies being spread on this website? You have posted several links that are upholding these rumors and lies but refuse to acknowledge the truthful ones. Shame on you!!
Are you a volunteer for the Obama Campaign?
The polls are not always right. OBAMA will win the nomination. Hillary needs to stop planting racist seeds because she will have to figure out how to undo all of those once OBAMA gets the nomination. It's sad that she hates to lose. She is doing a world of harm to the Democratic Party. It's sad that we are being done in by one of our own. Bow out gracefully Hillary. You need that NY job.
Americans don't have a time to gamble by chosing president candidate that they don't really know.
Hillary Clinton is the right '08 US president.
Whats this, Obama down ONE PERCENT and its news? Isnt that within the margin of error? Yes, it is. CNN is the Clinton News Network.
Obama can't win in the GE – the democrats are surrendering their chances to reclaim the White House out of pride for their golden boy.
If we want to win we will need to all get behind Hillary now. Or, we can lose the GE and hopefully Hillary will run in 2012.
Its no wonder his polls have dipped with the wall to wall race baiting coverage by your network. However, I am confident he will win the state just as the democrat did in Louisanna despite the race baiting. CNN should be ashamed.
Excuse me? I recall seeing a series of three polls on the CNN polling map last night showing him with an average 7 point lead. So how is this race "tightening," exactly?
Stop trying to make this exciting, CNN; the race is effectively over. NC will be an easy win for Obama.
well well well...doesn't this look familiar? CNN trying to make news out of nothing. A one point change in the polls in well within any statistical margin. They did this with the polls in Penn too. Wouldn't be surprised if nothing changes come voting time. CNN is desperate for news again.
Obama" Candidate Wins that Louisiana Special Election
Clinton cannot win North Carolina. Clinton cannot win Indiana, Clinton cannot win the Nomination. Unite for the General Election democrats. You have your candidate.
Here's a news flash: Obama is still going to win North Carolina and by double digits, too. Honestly, CNN, your spin is beginning to reveal itself.
The heading below the pics is incorrect should state Clinton narrowing the gap.
Obama will take N. Carolina.
Why is it that the uneducated seem to buy hillary's snake oil ?
I would like to know why Rev. Wright's picture is plastered on the homepage of CNN. This is old news and old news is no news at all!
CNN: also report that Obama is up by 1 in Indiana as of today.
Tuesday= the turning point in the race
And by awaiting moderation in terms of posting coments do you mean, rejecting comments that clearly blast CNN for bias delivering of political news.
Closing in! Seems as if this might be a real sqeaker too. The superdelegates are watching these last few very closely. I'm hoping for a Hillary win here and Indiana. Wouldn't that be great!!!
