The NewsmaxZogby Tracking Poll released Thursday has GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney tied with President Barack Obama in the national race — each with 47 percent.
John Zogby said: “Romney has gone from leading to a tie. Perhaps it is a combination of an improvement in Obama's job approval during the storm crisis and the great sorting out that normally happens late in a campaign.
"Obama continues to poll strong among his base — Hispanics, 64 percent to 33 percent; African-Americans, 88 percent to 8 percent; young voters, 59 percent to 34 percent; and union households, 59 percent to 34 percent. Meanwhile Romney is gaining with evangelicals, 70 percent to 27 percent.
Urgent Poll: Election Day Is Next Tuesday. Obama or Romney?
"Neither candidate is where he needs to be with key groups: Obama still needs more support among younger voters (especially women) and Romney needs more white voters support, though he leads 56 percent to 38 percent.
"With minor party candidates in the race, Obama leads 47 percent to Romney's 46 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson receiving 2 percent, Green Jill Stein and Constitution Virgil Goode at 1 percent each.
"Among early voters, the race is very close with Obama polling 49 percent to Romney's 47 percent.”
