Barack Obama 51
Hillary Clinton 39
Obama's lead has dropped after varying from 18-25 points in PPP's last five North Carolina polls.
The primary movement in the last week has been among white voters. Our last survey showed Clinton leading by only five points in the state with that group but now her margin is up to 56-35. Per usual Obama's overall lead comes from dominating the black vote, which he leads 83-9.
One piece of good news for Obama in the poll is that he has a lot more votes in the bank than Clinton. 14% of those surveyed said they had done early voting already, and with those folks Obama has a 63-31 advantage.
Obama continues to lead in every part of the state except the Mountains. PPP will have its final North Carolina Presidential poll next Monday.
