(CNN) – A new poll released Monday in the battleground state of North Carolina shows Republican nominee Mitt Romney with a four point advantage over President Barack Obama.
The American Research Group survey taken over the weekend indicates Romney with 50% to Obama's 46% among likely voters' choice for president. Romney's advantage is within the poll's sampling error.

Another recent poll in the state conducted by NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist released last week shows Obama with a slight advantage over Romney 48%-46%, also within the poll's sampling error.
In 2008, Obama narrowly won the swing state becoming the first Democrat to win North Carolina since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
This election season, President Obama has visited the state seven times since June 2011, not including his party's convention in Charlotte in early September.
Romney has visited the state four times for public events and three for private events since announcing his candidacy last June.
North Carolina has 15 electoral votes and is one of nine states CNN considers a "toss up" on its Electoral Map.
The American Research Group survey was taken by telephone from September 28-30 among 600 likely voters. The poll's sampling error is plus or minus four percentage points.
