WSJ/NBC Poll: Obama Leads Romney in Nevada, Ties Him in Colorado

Thursday, 25 Oct 2012 08:10 PM

 

President Barack Obama led in Nevada and tied Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Colorado among likely voters, according to a poll released today.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist College survey taken Oct. 23-24 showed Obama with a 50 percent to 47 percent advantage in Nevada and tied with Romney at 48 percent in Colorado.

Obama led Romney among likely voters in Colorado, 50 percent to 45 percent, in an NBC/Journal/Marist poll taken Sept. 16-18, and held a two-point lead in Nevada, 49 percent to 47 percent, in a Sept. 23-25 survey.

Colorado, with nine electoral votes, and Nevada, with five, are among the nine states that Obama and Romney are concentrating their time and money in during the final weeks of the campaign. Political analysts of both parties say that these states will determine the next president.

The survey of 1,128 likely voters in Colorado had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points, and the poll of 1,042 likely voters in Nevada had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
