Final national NBC/WSJ poll: Obama 48 percent, Romney 47 percent


With just two days until Election Day, President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney are running neck and neck nationally, according to the final national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll before the election.


Obama gets support from 48 percent of likely voters, while Romney gets 47 percent.

In the NBC/WSJ poll released two weeks ago, the two candidates were deadlocked at 47 percent each.

While both Obama and Romney are running virtually even in this national poll, a majority of surveys from the battleground states – especially in the crucial battlegrounds of Iowa, Ohio and Wisconsin – show the president with a slight advantage.

The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted Nov. 1-3 of 1,475 likely voters (including 443 cell phone-only respondents), and it has a margin of error of plus-minus 2.55 percentage points.

The rest of the survey will be published at 6:30 p.m. ET.
