North Carolina too close to call

The final pre-election poll from Public Policy Polling (which has a remarkably accurate record in predicting outcomes)suggests that it could be Wednesday at least before we know who will claim North Carolina’s electoral votes in the presidential election:

“the candidates are tied at 49 there based on rounded numbers, but if you break it out to decimal points Romney’s up 49.4% to 49.2% with 457 respondents having chosen him to 455 for Obama….

Our last three polls in North Carolina have all come out as ties. Barack Obama has built up a 54/45 lead during the early voting period, but Mitt Romney’s ahead 57/41 with those planning to vote on election day. Romney is making up for the registration advantage Democrats in the state have with a 55/40 lead among independent voters. Beyond that the race pretty much breaks down as you would expect. Obama is up with women (54/46), African Americans (87/12), and young voters (55/42). Romney is winning with men (54/44), whites (62/37), and seniors (58/41).”
