CNN poll: Obama, Romney neck and neck in Ohio

President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney remain engaged in a tight contest in Ohio, according to a CNN poll from that key battleground state released four days before the election.

With 50% support from likely voters, Obama narrowly outpaces Romney's 47% backing in the CNN/ORC International survey, which was conducted between Tuesday and Thursday. But that difference is within the poll's 3.5% sampling error. Ohio has 18 electoral votes.

Read more about the poll, and the race, on CNN's Political Ticker.

      Obama hopefully willl lose this election. He is a fraud. Obamacare is a joke. He helped drive the national debt to over 16 trillion.

      As someone who has a chronically-ill spouse, Obamacare is no joke. Thank God for it and may it continue.

      Thank you! That means a lot when so many are saying that the President is viewed as weak and ineffective in foreign policy. I'll bet you never said that about President Bush,

      Bush is not weak; he just wasted 4K brave wo/men, destroyed 30K injured/families, and $2T of tax dollars.

    I can't believe this. I went to the Mitt Romney website and looked up his five point plan. Nothing specific. I then went ti the full plan description. The page is blank! No descriptio.! Two days before the election and on your own website you offer to provide a full description but when you get their it is blank. Incredible. Check it out yourself.

      So what you're saying Adam, it's just like Obama's budget for the last four years...NON-EXISTENT.

      Hmmm....think I'd rather bet on a successful business leader who's taken on drowning companies and managed to resurrect them, not some narcissistic wannabe who has sunk our country further than it was before he took over. Umm..that would be Obama.

      It's there in full. Link off the front page: "Read Mitt Romney's FIve Point Plan."

      If you want to see it, when you go into the voting both, mark your ballot "Mitt Romney."

      Ohio's economy has been on the upswing because of your Republican governor, Gov. John Kasich of which there has been an increase in employment. If you paid attention you would already know that.

      I am with you. We here in Texas feel so helpless in this election. it is all up to Ohio and a few other states. I hope the majority sees that a liar for president is a disaster for all of us.

    Is this also a +11 Dem sample like your national poll?

    If so, Obama is going down in flames.

    If not, please show the internal breakdowns.
