Poll: Close race in Nevada, New Hampshire

(CNN) – New polls taken before the final presidential debate indicate that the race for the White House is all knotted up between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in two key states.

American Research Group released the surveys on Tuesday in battleground states showing Obama with a slight edge in Nevada, 49% to Romney's 47%, and Romney with the advantage in New Hampshire, 49% to Obama's 47%. But the results are well within the poll's sampling error making it a statistical tie.
