New Poll: Presidential Race Tied

Rasmussen Reports' latest poll shows Barack Obama taking 44% of the vote while John McCain gets 42%.

When "leaners" are included the numbers are even closer: Obama's 47% to McCain's 46%.

The candidates had been tied at 43% in Rasmussen's polling for the past two days. Obama previously held a five point lead over McCain for about five weeks.
