Washington (CNN) It's all tied up, according to a new national poll released two days before the presidential election.
And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost every major indicator of President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney that was tested in the poll.

11+ Dem sample? Are you kidding me? They’re desperate if so.
hey are starting to include registered voters to keep O’s numbers up.
just saw this on twitter . . +11 is crazy but still need those swing states but IF it is that bad nationally, OH has to turn red along with many more to fall to Red too!
Fox was showing O in Cinci and he was being heckled. haha
I feel a whole lot better now
This is truly farcical - Communist News Network has a Democratic voting advantage that is simply impossible!
And even here, O cannot crack 50%.
Ignore the polls, watch the action and the rhetoric.
Obama and Romney are both playing on mostly BLUE state turf. Romney is running the sort of campaign winning camps run, optimistic, hopeful, bland. Obama is running the sort of campaign losers run, nasty, desperate and shrill.
Obama is running around joined at the hip with Bill Clinton trying desperately to fire up the traditional Democrat blue collar vote. Obama is doing nothing to reach towards the middle. Romney is out there acting Presidential and reaching out to moderate and leans Democrat voters.
Obama is not acting like a candidate whose internal polling is showing him winning.
This poll has set twitter afire.
Why don’t we make it D+20 and be done with it so that I can stop even caring about the election?
What happened to journalistic credibility?
How do they explain the +11% Dem, or don’t they?
Otherwise it's totally useless.
The Christie bump is gone. We’ll deal with him later.
Can someone post the exact D/R/I breakdown of this poll?
Even if the actual turnout is the same as 2008 (D+8), Romney will see a narrow victory according to this poll. No way that happens though and D+11 is just out of the park crazy.
These polls are like junkies who need bigger and bigger doses to get the same high.
What is their reasoning for sampling more dems than republicans? I’m sure there must be a method behind their madness they claim publically. I understand what their hidden agenda is for doing it but why do they claim they oversample dems (if they do admit it)?
Talk about a biased tilted poll
I don’t know enough about the details. Are there more Democrats, is that why they keep the + Dems so high?
Where does it give the partisan breakdown?
I think it is clear what is going on here.
CNN showed a move towards Romney but didn’t want to report it because it would destroy the current narrative of Obambi’s inevitability. So, they hid it by massively inflating their RAT numbers.
This is the single best bit of polling news we have had in a week.
