U.S. President Obama and presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are virtually tied in a poll taken in 12 swing states, Gallup said Monday.
The Gallup-USA Today Swing States poll was conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Obama has a 4-percentage point advantage over Romney among solid supporters. Thirty-six percent of swing-state voters say they are certain they will vote for Obama in November, while 32 percent say are certain they will vote for Romney.
The remaining 11 percent who favor Obama and the 13 percent who say they lean toward Romney said there’s a chance they could change their mind before Election Day, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said.
