The race is increasingly close in Ohio, with President Obama leading GOP challenger Mitt Romney 51 to 47 percent among likely voters in the latest CNN/ORC
Obama's four-point lead is within the margin of error. The poll was conducted October 5-8, after the first presidential debate in Denver.
The survey highlights a trend appearing on other national and swing state polls. The candidates still have a wide gender gap; Romney leads by 14 points among men and Obama by 22 points among women voters.
Other polls also show the GOP candidate actually leading in Ohio. American Research Group surveyed likely voters and Romney topped Obama 48 to 47 percent.
