President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are in a dead heat in most national polls, but a new survey finds voters by 20 points think Obama will return to the White House for another four years.

The Rasmussen Reports poll found 55 percent of likely U.S. voters said they believe Obama will be re-elected in November, compared to 33 percent who think Romney will win. Another 13 percent were unsure who would triumph.

When it came to which candidate voters actually want to win, 46 percent were for Obama while 45 percent opted for the Republican nominee. Five percent said they were undecided, and 4 percent said they wanted another candidate.

Rasmussen’s poll of 11 key swing states, which Obama won in 2008 but could go either way this time, show the president had a 50 percent approval rating.

The swing states are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The presidential survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted Aug. 26-27 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
