We are running out of synonyms for "deadlocked."
On the eve of Election Day, national and swing-state polls, as they have for much of the 2012 cycle, reflect a presidential race teetering on a knife's edge.
The final CNN/Opinion Research poll before the election, released late Sunday, shows a tied race - both President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney each earn the support of 49 percent of likely voters nationwide. Among the broader sample of registered voters, Mr. Obama leads Romney by a slim 2 points, 50 to 48 percent. CNN's final survey of 693 likely voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
In the final USA Today/Gallup battleground state poll, the candidates are neck-and-neck, with both the President and Romney supported by 48 percent of likely voters in 12 states identified as top battlegrounds. The poll shows a small resurgence for the president, who was down 50 to 46 percent in the same poll after a desultory performance in the first presidential debate.

They wish it was a toss up.
Sure they have weighted democrats by 4 to 11 points
If media like CBS massaged story to be a toss up on election eve, it is going to be a Romney win. There is no way an outlet let CBS would not fit an Obama lead into the narrative if they could pull it off. I go to bed moderately confident.
The ONLY way this election could be a toss up is if it was engineered to be one..
The Polls show much malicious engineering..
No less than 3/4(maybe 5/6) whole networks manipulating results..
Even FOX seems complicit in it..
I would not be surprised to hear of Solyent Green being advertised..
BArry Half-White bragging about increased gasoline prices being a good thing and
republicans selecting the inventor of Romney-care to be candidate..
Many things do not make sense.. a toss up does not seem likely.. or even possible..
And may not be.. Animal FArm may be real..
We’ll all know its real when Obama is re-elected..
I believe it is razor close.
I think Romney is somehow going to find a way to pull out close wins in Ohio and Virginia and will be our next President, but it will be by the thinnest of margins IMO.
Hope everybody gets up bright and early in the morning to GOTV. The future of our country could well depend on our efforts!
Well... when it comes to polls, Obama gets the normal DEM adjustment, plus the affirmative action adjustment. Your speculation is likely accurate.
