Rassmusson Reports:

Mitt Romney continues to hold a small lead over President Obama in the key swing state of North Carolina. 

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State finds Romney earning 47% support to Obama‚Äôs 44%.  Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, while six percent (6%) are undecided.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Romney held a 51% to 43% lead over the president in May and a slight 46% to 44% edge in April

A word of caution: Rassmusson has a track record of bias and, well, being wrong, when it comes to polling.  It is a favorite of Fox News.

On the other hand, PPP, a much more reputable polling firm, had Romney 2 points above Obama on June 12.
