The President urged supporters to “choose hope” by getting out and voting Democrat on November 8.
Speaking at a rally at the University of North Carolina, Obama told the crowd that the progress made during his eight years at office was now at risk.
North Carolina is considered a critical swing state in the upcoming election and it is possible the election may not be won without it, said Obama.
The incumbent president said: “I hate to put a little pressure on you but the fate of the Republic rests on your shoulders.
“The fate of the world is teetering and you, North Carolina, are going to have to make sure that we push it in the right direction.”
Obama said that voters should “stand up and reject cynicism” and “choose hope”.
While most national polls still favour Clinton to win, she has lost the comfortable lead she held late last month.
With the race tightening the focus has now shifted to battleground states like North Carolina, Florida, Ohio and Nevada.
A senior adviser to Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, has reportedly urged the president to remove James Comey, the FBI director, from his post.
An unnamed source told the New York Post tabloid newspaper: “Valerie argued that Comey was interfering deliberately in the election process and had to be stopped.
“The president said he was worried about the consequences of taking such an action — the tsunami of outrage that would come his way, and possibly become a major footnote, or worse, in the history of his presidency.”
There was no response from Mrs Jarrett. The president, would, in theory, have the power to fire Mr Comey – which could be interesting should Mrs Clinton win the White House on Tuesday.
Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, said on Wednesday of Mr Comey: “Maybe he’s not in the right job.”
