Obama-Romney race dead heat in new CNN Poll of Polls

Washington (CNN) - A new average of the latest national surveys indicates that the race for the White House remains all knotted up.

According to a new CNN Poll of Polls compiled and released Wednesday morning indicates that 46% of registered voters say they'd vote for President Barack Obama if the November election were held today, with 45% saying they'd cast a ballot for presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney. This latest edition of the CNN Poll of Polls is an average of the three national polls conducted in the past week and a half.

With Obama's one-point margin over Romney well within the sampling error of the surveys, it's fair to say that the presidential race can be considered a dead heat.

The three surveys included in the CNN Poll of Polls average are ABC News/Washington Post (July 5-8), Gallup Daily Tracking Poll (July 2-9) and Quinnipiac University (July 1-8). The CNN Poll of Poll does not have a sampling error.

    You'd think with all the money that the pro-Romney/anti-Obama groups, Romney would be far ahead of Obama in the polls. I am glad that some people aren't really listening to some of the crap that has come up.

    CNN like the exit polls in Wisconsin are wrong; the American population / voters see the Democrats in Congress, president Obama, the Obama administration as a complete FAILURE. The Democrats / liberals didn’t see the 2010 Republican landslide win coming and Democrats / liberals don’t see the 2012 landslide Republican win coming.

    The 1984 Reagan v. Mondale election will look close compared to the landslide Republican win over Democrats in 2012.

    I think Mittens is really firing up the plutocrats who make up the upper .1% of Americans. They know he is plastic and will bend to their wishes.

    Remember when Newt was kicking Mittens butt in the primaries, and Mittens dropped $15 million on negative ads against Newt? 37% of republicans are fired up to support Mittens, but the rest wish they had a real candidate.
