President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney are virtually tied among registered voters in three important swing states – Michigan, North Carolina, and New Hampshire — according to new NBC News-Marist polls.

In Michigan, Obama leads 47 percent to 43 percent. That’s well within the 3 percentage point margin of error for each candidate.

In North Carolina, the president is in front by 46 percent to 44 percent, with a 3.1 percentage point margin of error. And in New Hampshire, the candidates are tied at 45 percent, also with a 3.1 point margin of error.

As for Obama's approval rating, in Michigan, 48 percent of voters approve of his job performance, while 42 percent disapprove. In North Carolina, he has 47 percent approval and the same level of disapproval. In New Hampshire, the totals are 47 percent approval and 45 percent disapproval.

When it comes to Romney, in Michigan he has 37 percent approval and 43 percent disapproval. In North Carolina, 40 percent of respondents approve of Romney, while 42 percent disapprove. In New Hampshire, Romney’s numbers are even — 45 percent approval and disapproval.
