CNN) One day before Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney campaigns in Nevada, a new poll indicates the state remains very much a battleground in the race for the White House.
According to CNN/ORC International survey (PDF) released Thursday, 49% of likely voters in Nevada say if the election were held today, they'd vote for President Barack Obama, with 46% supporting Romney. The president's three point margin is within the poll's sampling error, suggesting the two candidates are effectively tied in the fight for the Silver State's six electoral votes.

Interesting that The Disaster has lost at least 10% off his victory margin. Also no breakout of D/R/I.
The question is will the prospectors come in off their claims to vote.
I believe Nevada has the nation’s highest U-6 unemployment number. Something around 23%.
I’m convinced Harry Reid has stolen two elections. The last one by a wide margin. The fix is probable already in for Nevada.
Mitt needs to go in with at least a 5 point edge to offset the Rat corruption in Nevada.
Interesting state though. In 2008, nearly everyone called it a swing state with Obama lean or a tossup right up to the election. Obama ended up winning by 13%. Obviously, Obummer is still campaigning there but I don’t have much faith Romney will win here.
This would be better, but our side, especially the politicians and the media on our side, never complete an argument, and its jeopardizing the future of our country. WHY do we continue to refer to 8 percent unemployment, when that number has gone down only because 9 million people have given up looking for work with Obama as president, and thus they are no longer considered unemployed and no longer included in the unemployment number. Why cant we add 30 words or so it would take just a few seconds and say that unemployment stands at 8.1 percent, but that number has dropped only because when people give up looking for a job as 9 million have with Obama as president they are no longer counted as unemployed. Unemployment counting the people who have given up is 11.4 percent. PLEASE respond in discussions in some similar way and PLEASE encourage our politicians and our media friends to hammer on this fact. PLEASE. Again, unemployment counting the people who have given up is 11.4 percent. And that doesnt count the people who work part-time but want to work full-time. PLEASE complete the argument. Numbers have a strong psychological impact.
He probably won't.
Remember how the polls showed Sharron Angle ahead of Dingy Harry right up until the 2010 election. The unions sprang into action on election day and there were even some casino bosses that were tasking their lower-level managers with getting their employees out to vote (for Reid, of course).
CNN is NOT PROVIDING the party break-down in this poll. What does that tell you? It tells me that Romney is ahead in NV.
The bigger question is if he is only up 3 points in a state he won by 13in 2008, how can he hope to carry any state he won by 5 points or less?
