Presumptive republican nominee Mitt Romney is edging President Barack Obama among voters leading into the Memorial Day weekend, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.

Romney is earning 45 percent of the vote to Obama’s 44 percent, with five percent favoring a third party candidate and six percent undecided. The candidates have been within two points of each other for almost two weeks.

In the key states of Indiana and Pennsylvania, Romney leads the president by six points.

Among white voters, Romney leads by 17 points, but picks up only four percent of the black vote.

Obama and Romney will both commemorate Memorial Day with tributes to military veterans. Romney will hold a Memorial Day tribute with Sen. McCain at the Veterans Museum & Memorial Center in San Diego on Monday. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will participate in the traditional event at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday and attend an event at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall on the National Mall to mark the 50th anniversary of the war.
