Another poll released today shows Republican Mitt Romney leading Democratic President Barack Obama in the battleground state of North Carolina.

The High Point University/Fox 8 Poll gives Romney a 46 percent to 43 percent lead over Obama. The poll is of registered voters and was completed just before Romney gave his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last Thursday.

Obama is set to give his acceptance speech Thursday night as the Democratic National Convention concludes at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
