President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney couldn’t be much closer in their campaign, heading into their final debate tonight on foreign policy in Florida. A good snapshot of just how close the race is comes from a look at Public Policy Polling, which has added a national tracking poll to its impressive arsenal of swing-state polling in recent days.
Now check out PPP’s recent swing-state polling in the past two weeks:
- Iowa: Obama leads by 1.
- New Hampshire: Romney leads by 1.
- Virginia: Obama leads by 2.
- Wisconsin: Obama leads by 2.
- Florida: Romney leads by 1.
- North Carolina: Romney leads by 2.
That means 95 crucial toss-up electoral votes from battleground states are within 2 points, per PPP’s polling. Colorado and Nevada, two other crucial swing states, find Obama leading by just 3 and 4 points, respectively.
