A new poll found that Sen. Kay Hagan, North Carolina Democrat, has a slight edge in the upcoming midterm elections, though President Obama continues to have very low approval ratings in the swing state.

The High Point University poll released Monday found that both the president and Ms. Hagan have low approval ratings in the state. Just 38 percent and 39 percent respectively approve of how the leaders are doing their jobs.

Despite that, Ms. Hagan has a two-point lead over her GOP challenger, Thom Tillis, with 42 percent of likely voters supporting Ms. Hagan and just 40 percent supporting Mr. Tillis. About 12 percent of likely voters are still undecided.

The race in North Carolina is one of the closely-watched elections that could determine if Republicans gain control of the Senate.

The results come from telephone interviews with more than 400 likely voters in North Carolina. The margin of error is 5 percent.
