AP Poll: Romney Leads By 2 Nationally

Mitt Romney holds a 2-point among likely voters nationwide, according to a poll released Thusday. 

The poll, conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate Communications on behalf of the Associated Press, shows Romney narrowly leading President Barack Obama 47 percent to 45 percent. In the Ap/GfK poll a month ago — during a period following the national conventions when the Democratic ticket was opening up leads nationally and in swing states over their Republican challengers — Obama led by only 1 among likely voters.

The PollTracker average currently shows Obama leading by less than a point.
