The latest Presidential Polls for the 2012 Election show President Barack Obama and Repubican candidate Mitt Romney in a tie with just days to go.

In total four nationwide polls indicate a tie between Obama and Romney, as well as a number of swing state polls which indicate a similarly too-close-to-call contest for the White House.

Rasmussen Reports presidential tracking poll for Sunday Nov. 4 has shown that Obama and Romney are tied on 49 percent each nationally. Amazingly the poll indicated that just 1 percent of voters remain undecided.

Meanwhile the latest ABC News/Washington Post presidential tracking poll has also indicated a tie. Obama and Romney both managed to claim 48 percent of that poll which was conducted nationally. Again undecideds were very low, with voters who supported neither main candidate making up just 1 percent, and voters who had "no opinion" at just 2 percent. That poll was released on Nov. 3.

Another tie was revealed by the Politico/George Washington University/Battleground poll, which was also conducted nationally. Both Obama and Romney were again awarded 48 percent of voters. That poll was released today, Sunday Nov. 4.

A fourth nationwide poll is the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which showed Obama ahead by a single percentage point, with 48 percent of the vote compared to Romney's 47 percent. This poll was also released Sunday Nov. 4.

Meanwhile a number of swing state polls have shown an extraordinarily close race. A Columbus Dispatch presidential poll for Ohio has shown Obama leading by 2 percentage points, with 50 percent compared to Romney's 48 percent. That poll was released on Sunday Nov. 4. In comparison a Rasmussen Reports poll for Ohio, released just two days ago, had a statistical tie between Obama and Romney with 49 percent each.

In yet another poll by Baydoun/Foster for the state of Michigan, Romney was shown to lead by 0.62 of a percentage point. That poll marked Obama with 46.24 percent and Romney with 46.86 percent. That poll again was released on Sunday Nov. 4.

Finally a WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll for the state of New Hampshire has also indicated the two candidates are tied. Both Obama and Romney claimed 48 percent with 3 percent undecided. That poll was released yesterday Nov. 3.
