(CNN) – Just 49 days out from Election Day, a new poll in swing state New Hampshire released Tuesday shows President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in a statistical tie among registered voters in the state.
The American Research Group poll shows 48% favoring Obama and 46% favoring Romney. The president's advantage falls within the poll's sampling error.

A WMUR Granite State Poll taken last week of likely voters (note the ARG poll today is of registered voters) after the Democratic National Convention also showed the pair in a statistical tie in the state with 45% favoring Obama and 40% supporting Romney with a sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points.
New Hampshire has four electoral votes and is one of the nine states considered a toss up on the CNN Electoral Map.
The New Hampshire Poll was conducted by telephone from September 15 through 17. Of the 600 interviews conducted, 558 were of New Hampshire registered voters: 167 were registered Republicans, 156 registered Democrats and 235 undeclared voters. The sampling error for the 558 registered voters is plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
