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

As of Monday, Romney has a small lead over Obama in voter support, according to Rasmussen Report's daily presidential poll. Gov. Romney received support from 49 percent of voters while President Obama received 48 percent. The poll also found two percent supporting a third-party candidate and one percent still undecided.

The results for Monday'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.

Rasmussen posted a message on their site saying: "Rasmussen Reports will conduct our final tracking poll tonight and release the results early Tuesday morning. Later today, we will issue our final swing state polls including Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire."

With poll results to close to call, 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 almost here and each presidential candidate are in the last days of their respective campaigns.
