A new poll from Elon University says North Carolina voters are split in their support of President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as Election Day nears.
Romney and Obama both claim 45 percent of the vote in the state, according to the poll. Officials said the results show about 5 percent of voters remain undecided, and within that group, leanings are evenly divided. Two percent said "neither."
The poll results indicate a tightening of the race in North Carolina since late August, when the Elon University Poll found Romney with a lead of 4 percentage points.
The most recent poll of more than 1,200 likely voters was conducted Oct. 21-26, and has a margin of error of 2.79 percentage points.
