The presidential race remains neck-and-neck nationally, with President Obama leading Mitt Romney by a single percentage point, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released on Tuesday. Obama enjoys 48 percent support among likely voters, while Romney garners 47 percent, well within the sample’s margin of error of plus-or-minus four percentage points.

Obama enjoys an eight-point edge among women in the poll, while Romney has a seven-point edge among men.

Romney leads Obama among likely voters on handling the economy (six percentage points) and the deficit (15 percentage points), while Obama leads Romney by nine percentage points on the question of who would do more to help middle-class Americans.

 

The poll was conducted Oct. 25-28, just before the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.

Six of the eight national polls conducted in the last week and factored into RealClearPolitics’ national polling average have the candidates within a single percentage point of each other.
