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.
