The latest presidential polls on Wednesday have continued to show a tight race with just two weeks until Election Day 2012. The latest Rasmussen Reports poll has indicated that Ohio is now tied, but that Mitt Romney is ahead in a cumulative swing state poll. Where as Gallup has put Romney ahead by five percentage points in its latest poll.

The all important swing state of Ohio holds 18 Electoral College votes and could ultimately decide the outcome of the entire election with everything so close. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey of “likely voters” in Ohio, which was taken the night after the third and final presidential debate has shown the presidential candidates tied at 48 percent each. With now less than two weeks until election day both Democrats and Republicans will be looking eagerly at Ohio, hoping that they can be the ones to steal it by the tightest of margins.

That Rasmussen Reports poll surveyed 750 likely voters and was conducted on Oct. 23, 2012. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 points with a 95 percent level of confidence.

In another new Rasmussen Reports poll, swing states were tracked to give a combined picture of 11 key states that will decide the outcome of the election. Overall those 11 key states hold 146 Electoral College votes including those from Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

In those 11 key swing states Romney holds 50 percent of the vote compared to Obama's 46 percent - a four percentage point win for the Republican candidate.

Romney has hit the 50 percent mark in that combined swing states poll four times in five days, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Rasmussen Reports states: "The survey is conducted on a rolling seven-day basis, and most of the interviews for today's update were completed before the end of Monday night's presidential debate. Romney has now held a modest lead for 13 of the last 16 days; Obama was ahead twice, and the candidates ran even once."
