Time to panic? Obama goes up by 2 in NC per the latest Rasmussen poll


Barack Obama has a two-point advantage over John McCain in the traditionally Republican state of North Carolina.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the Tar Heel State shows Obama attracting 49% of the vote while McCain earns 47%. A week ago, McCain held a three-point edge. This is the first time in eight Rasmussen Reports polls that Obama has held any kind of a lead in North Carolina, though the candidates were tied once as well.

According to RCP’s list of past polling numbers, this is the first time Obama’s been up ever – in any poll – in NC. The McCain campaign is stepping up efforts here, but their staff far outnumbers Mc’s.

Must remain calm. Must remain calm.
