Barack Obama 47
Hillary Clinton 43
Most recent polls in North Carolina had shown Obama with a double digit lead. But his standing in the national polls has declined over the last week and it looks like the same trend is occurring in North Carolina.
One interesting thing about North Carolina relative to other states is that Obama is doing almost equally well among men and women- he leads by five points with men and by four points with women.
The standard racial gap does apply though. Obama leads by 63 points with black voters while Clinton has a 23 point edge with white voters.
One thing's for absolute sure. The specter of a contested primary will bring out folks in record numbers to the polls in May. 75% of those surveyed said they were more likely to vote if North Carolina's primary played a role in who receives the Democratic nomination.
