Polls: Candidates Neck-and-Neck

With two weeks to go until the big day, the presidential race is closer than ever. Gone are the days of Romney’s wide lead or Obama’s wide lead—a Washington Post/ABC News poll found the race almost tied at 49 percent for Romney and 48 percent for Obama (and within the poll’s margin of error). The key battlefield seems to be Ohio, where a Time magazine poll along with a CBS News/Quinnipiac poll showed Obama holding a 5-point lead. Another survey out today by Gallup gave Romney a lead of 3 points countrywide, just outside the 3-point margin of error.
