President Barack Obama holds a 3-point edge in Nevada, according to a new poll released Thursday.
In the latest poll from CNN, Obama leads Mitt Romney among likely voters in the state, 49 percent to 46 percent.
Obama carried Nevada by nearly 13 points in 2008, and he has consistently led there throughout the current campaign. But recent polling shows a tightening in the Silver State, as Romney has steadily made gains there since the end of July.
The PollTracker Average shows that Nevada still slightly favors Obama, who leads by 3 points, but also illustrates that the president has lost the larger advantage he claimed earlier this year.
