A new POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll finds the presidential race between President Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney to be very close, with Romney leading by a single point — 48% to 47%, among likely voters.
More important is the 10-point lead, 48% to 38%, Romney has among the critical Independents voters. That confirms Romney’s six point lead among Independets that Gallup found last month.
The Battleground poll also found that Romney has a “6-point lead among those who describe themselves as extremely likely to vote in November.”

In an interesting contrast to a message team Obama was spinning on the Sunday talk shows, Democratic pollster Celinda Lake who helped conduct the bipartisan poll admitted, “the Democrats are less enthusiastic than the Republicans.”
The POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll was conducted from April 29 to May 3 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.
