Wow...Obama is now leading Romney in all 11 swing states according to recent polls--including North Carolina.  He's also up in two national polls by 7-points as described here:

President Barack Obama's yawning post-convention lead over Mitt Romney has extended to 7 points, according to two new polls released Friday.

Each poll shows the president earning the support of at least 50 percent of likely voters, while also showing a low level of support for Romney.  The Heartland Monitor Poll, conducted by FTI Consulting on behalf of All State and the National Journal, shows Obama leading Romney, 50 percent to 43 percent.  

...The new Reason-Rupe poll, conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International, shows Obama outpacing Romney among likely voters, 52 percent to 45 percent.  That includes undecided respondents who are leaning toward one candidate.

Regarding North Carolina:

A new High Point University/Fox 8 Poll finds that President Barack Obama now has a slight lead over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in North Carolina, though race remains tight.

According to results released Thursday, 46 percent of North Carolina registered voters who participated in the poll said they would vote for Obama if the election were held today, compared to 43 percent who said they would vote for Romney. The general election is Nov. 6.

The results are a reversal of the last poll and the first time that Obama has led during surveys this summer. The previous HPU Poll, fielded in late August, found that 46 percent of registered voters in the state said they would vote for Romney while 43 percent said they would vote for Obama.

Other findings show Obama’s job approval rating is 49 percent, an improvement from earlier HPU Polls.

Also, if you include "leaners" the results are 48/44.

Go team blue!!!!!

Here's the hard data:

EDIT: From right-leaning Purple Strategies:

North Carolina (Obama +2): Obama currently holds a small lead, 48% to 46%. There is a relatively strong 18-point gender gap in the state, with men favoring Romney by 8 points, and women favoring Obama by 10.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
