All tied up just before final faceoff
Boca Raton, Florida (CNN) -- Hours before the final presidential debate, a new average of the latest non-partisan, live operator, national polls indicates a dead heat between the two presidential candidates in the race for the White House.
According to a CNN Poll of Polls compiled and released Monday morning, 47% of likely voters say they support President Barack Obama, with an equal amount saying they back Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
The new edition of the CNN Poll of Polls is an average of five live operator, non-partisan, national surveys of likely voters conducted over the past week, mostly after the second presidential debate (on Oct. 16). The surveys are the Gallup Daily Tracking Poll (Oct. 14-20); NBC News/Wall Street Journal (Oct. 17-20); Washington Times/JZ Analytics (Oct. 18-20); Politico/George Washington University/Battleground (Oct. 14-18); and Investors Business Daily/TIPP (Oct. 15-20). The Poll of Polls does not have a sampling error.
