Tuesday’s presidential town hall debate at Hofstra University brings with it some added pressure for President Obama. After a lackluster performance in the first debate October 3rd, Obama finds himself now trailing in some key battleground states.

The latest numbers [1] from Public Policy Polling show Mitt Romney with a two-point lead (49-47) over Obama in North Carolina, helped largely by white voters and independents.

Public Policy Polling Director Tom Jensen notes that Obama still has his customary lead with women at 50-46. But the latest poll shows that’s getting drowned out by the 53-43 one Romney has with men.

Jensen joined us over the weekend on News & Views to discuss the presidential race as well as the gubernatorial contest and NC Council of State races.
