President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney continue to run neck-and-neck, according to a new poll released Tuesday evening.
In the latest Ipsos/Reuters poll, Obama edges Romney by the narrowest of margins among registered voters nationwide, 45 percent to 44 percent. The results are consistent with other national polls, nearly all of which have shown the president and the former Massachusetts governor in a dead heat. But Tuesday's poll may still be a cause for alarm within the Obama campaign, as the president held a 7-point lead over Romney in the previous Ipsos/Reuters survey released only a month ago.
The PollTracker Average also depicts an extremely tight contest, with Obama currently holding a slim advantage over Romney.
