It looks like Newt Gingrich's surge in the polls might be good news for President Barack Obama's re-election prospects, at least in North Carolina.

Research from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling group shows the President leading Gingrich by a 47-43 margin in the Tar Heel State.

If the Republican nominee was Mitt Romney, Mr. Obama might have more of a battle on his hands. Poll figures for that race show a 46-46 tie in the state.
