Rasmussen: Race Tied at 48–48

Today, Rasmussen’s Daily Tracker has the race tied, 48–48. Yesterday, Mitt Romney was winning by two points. Meanwhile:

The race remains a Toss-Up in Ohio [48-49]  but Romney is up by three in Virginia [50-47], has opened a bit of a lead in North Carolina [52-46]. That moves North Carolina into the Leans Republican column in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College projections. However, the president still has a slight Electoral College lead. Nine states with 105 Electoral Votes remain in the Toss-Up category.

According to Rasmussen, Obama is also up a point in New Hampshire (50–49), and is winning Nevada by three (50–47). Romney has a five point lead in Florida (51-46).
