2016 Presidential Election

Obama, Romney tied at 47 percent in NBC/Wall Street Journal poll

President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney were tied at 47 percent each among likely voters with just 15 to go before the U.S. presidential election, according to NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday.

The nationwide poll has reinforced the perception of the race as a cliffhanger.

It showed "a little bit of a lead" for Romney among the key battleground states as a group.

Among a larger sample of registered voters, Obama led Romney 49 percent to 44 percent, according to the Wall Street Journal.

This was down from a seven-point edge the president had among registered voters in late September.

In recent weeks, Romney has been closing in on Obama with several surveys showing the pair tied or close to it.

The NBC/WSJ poll of 816 likely voters and 1,000 registered voters was carried out between October 17 to 20. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.43 percentage points for the sample of likely voters and plus or minus 3.1 percentage points for registered voters.
