Fox News poll: 2012 Obama-Romney race would be tight

(FOX) - President Barack Obama and Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney are essentially tied in a hypothetical general election matchup.

Still, Obama's support is stronger and more positive than Romney's.

That's according to a Fox News poll released Monday.

In a potential Obama-Romney election, 46 percent of voters would back Obama and 45 percent Romney if the election were held today. The president's narrow advantage is well within the poll's three percentage-point margin of sampling error.
