Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama by a single point in North Carolina, according to a poll released Thursday from in-state institution High Point University.
The poll shows Romney picking up the support of 46 percent of Tar Heel State voters, while Obama trails with 45 percent — a flip from High Point's conducted in late-September and early-October that showed the president leading by a point.
High Point's latest poll was conducted Oct. 22-30 using live phone interviews with 403 North Carolina voters, an oversample from its national survey that was also released Thursday. It has a margin of error of 5 percentage points.
The PollTracker Average currently shows Romney with a lead of less than 2 points in North Carolina.
