A new CNN/ORC poll finds the presidential race tighter than it was a month ago, with President Obama leading Mitt Romney 50 percent to 47 percent among likely voters.
Both likely and registered voters continue to trust Obama more than Romney on foreign policy, suggesting that the attacks in Libya and Republican criticism of the administration has not had an effect on public opinion (yet).
CNN published its demographic breakdown, which likely will lead some Republicans to argue that Romney's performance is understated. Among the likely voters surveyed, 37 percent described themselves as Democrats, 34 percent described themselves as Independents and 29 percent described themselves as Republicans.
A Post-ABC News poll released Monday got similar numbers, with Obama at 49 percent and Romney at 47 percent. In swing states, Obama leads with likely voters by 11 points. But those polls shouldn't be taken as a sign of what's happening in any one state, as The Fix explains here.
