President Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney are virtually tied in national opinion polls, with nine or so states, including Colorado, likely to be the deciding factors in this year's race.

According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, Obama and Romney are running neck and neck both here in Colorado and Nevada.

The new survey shows that Romney has gained some ground over Obama in Colorado over the past month where they are currently tied at 48 percent among likely voters.

In Nevada, the president still maintains a narrow edge against Romney with a 50 percent to 47 percent lead among likely voters.

The race for Colorado’s nine electoral votes has tightened since mid-September following the Democratic National Convention and before the debates when Obama led Romney 50 percent to 45 percent.

This latest poll was conducted earlier in the week after the third and final presidential debate.

In the 2008 presidential election, Obama won Colorado by 9 percent and Nevada by 12 points.
