IBD/TIPP Poll: Obama, Romney In A Dead Heat

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney remain virtually tied in the fifth installment of a daily tracking poll sponsored by Investors Business Daily and released on Saturday.  

Obama holds a tiny lead over Romney among likely voters, 46.4 percent to 45.7 percent — identical to the results of Friday’s tracking poll.    The pollsters indicated that Saturday’s results, based on responses gathered Oct. 7-12, serve as further evidence that Romney’s post-debate momentum has begun to recede.

Romney still claims a slim lead over Obama in the PollTracker Average, 47.6 percent to 46.4 percent.
