The latest presidential polls show Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama evenly matched.

As of Friday, Mitt Romney tied Barack Obama in voter support, according to Rasmussen Report's daily presidential poll. Each candidate received support from 48 percent of voters, with 1 percent supporting a third-party candidate and 3 percent still undecided.

The results for Friday's poll were based on phone interviews over three consecutive nights. The number of people interviewed increased from 500 to 1,000 for the week leading up to Election Day.

Hurricane Sandy has impacted Rasmussen, as they noted on their website the following: "Rasmussen Reports is based in Asbury Park, New Jersey and we were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. However, our survey interview calls are placed from a different location, so data gathering was able to continue. Today, however, we will release only a limited amount of data. We hope to resume a more complete schedule tomorrow."

Romney had at least a two point lead over Obama for previous weeks. With a tie this close to Election Day, Rasmussen doesn't have a projected winner.

"It's somewhat surprising that heading into the final weekend of the election season, we are unable to confidently project who is likely to win the White House," Scott Rasmussen commented. "But the race for the White House remains close because of the economy. Most Americans do not feel better off than they were four years ago, but most are not feeling worse off either."

The latest Electoral College projected reports showed President Obama leading with 237 Electoral votes and Romney with 206. In order to become president of the United States, a candidate needs 270 Electoral votes. With 95 Electoral votes remaining outside what are considered firmly decided states, the latest toss-up states are Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado, Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire.

Election Day is only a few days away so every day is more crucial to the candidates' chances of taking the presidency.
