A new poll released Sunday indicates the presidential race between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama is still tight in a dozen major battlegrounds.
According to the latest survey by USA Today/Gallup, the president has a small advantage over his Republican rival, 47% to 45%, in 12 key states. The two-point margin falls well within the poll’s sampling error.
Obama’s edge over Romney represents the same two-point margin he held when the same poll was last conducted in May.
When zooming out to include voters from the other states, the gap expands to a four-point margin in favor of Obama, 48% to 44%.
