Poll: Obama, Romney Virtually Tied In Colorado

President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney are locked in a statistical dead heat in Colorado, according to a new poll released Friday afternoon. 

The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA and commissioned by the Denver Post, shows Obama holding negligible 1-point lead over Romney among likely voters in Colorado, 47 percent to 46 percent — well within the poll’s margin of error of four percentage points.  Obama’s lead 1-point edge remains unchanged when former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who is running on the Libertarian ticket, is added to the equation.  

A survey from a pair of Democratic-leaning pollsters on Thursday showed Obama holding a 5-point lead over Romney in Colorado.  The PollTracker Average currently shows Colorado narrowly leaning toward Obama, who leads Romney there, 48.4 percent to 45.6 percent.
