The Behavior Research Center poll released Saturday shows Obama ahead of Romney 42-40 percent among registered voters and 44-42 percent among likely voters. Both tallies are within the poll’s 4.4 percent margin of error, making the race “dead even,” a summary of the results states.
The new survey bucks other polls of the Grand Canyon State, which have generally shown Romney ahead, often by comfortable margins.
Now wouldn’t the be an interesting twist if Obama actually carrier Arizona. With the rise and subsequent rejection of numerous Tea Party legislators in the state and the increase in the Latino population, Arizona could be in play if voter participation among certain demographic groups hits respectable levels.
UPDATE: CNN Article provides an extended look at this new poll.
