(CBS News) President Obama and Mitt Romney are effectively tied in the race for the presidency, according to a new CBS News/New York Times survey.
Forty-seven percent of registered voters nationwide who lean towards a candidate back Romney, while 46 percent support the president. Four percent are undecided. The one percentage point difference is within the survey's three point margin of error.
Romney leads by eight points among men; the president leads by five points among women.
The president's supporters are more likely to strongly back their candidate. Fifty-two percent strongly favor Mr. Obama, while just 29 percent of Romney voters strongly back the presumptive Republican nominee.

Romney will leap ahead if he picks Rubio as VP.
I’m agreeing with you! He cannot pick Condi or anyone else.
If CBSNEWYORKTIMES says its even, then Romney is up by 5.
Among REAL MEN, Obamugabe trails by 40, and among REAL WOMEN Obamugabe trails by 35.
They had Reagan behind in the polls with carter, Reagan and mondale about even, GWB behind.
If it is even now, romney will win in a landslide.
Exactly, you have to factor in the heavy sampling bias of these liberal networks.
Looks as though all the Bain attacks did were drive up Obama's negatives! BWAHAHA!!
This ain't right. What is it? The Tattooed fat people vote? What? They must be sampling members of African-American Motorcycle Gangs and single white women who own more than 5 cats.
Fake, but accurate. Or should I say, accurately fake.
If a poll shows Romney ahead by one point, you know the reality is he is at least 5 points ahead.
Most of the undecideds go against the incumbent.
They just want you to think it’s a dead heat.
how the hell can this be?
easy. The stupid losers outnumber us 2 to 1. The only reason we stand a chance in the elections is because we vote and they sit home on their worthless fat lazy asses.
I still say barky dumps plugs
Agree Rubio will give the quickest poll bounce.... otherwise this is Cbs and that is not good news for Bambi.... I want to NOT believe all these polls saying it is even as that is what is in the medias best interest actually.... keeps everyone glued to the race....
Since this poll is of RVs and Romney does better with LVs, you’re probably right.
