Poll: Romney holding slim 1-point lead in Colorado

Obama, though, enjoys lead among independent voters at 50 percent to 42.

The close findings in the ARG poll mirror those of other surveys, which show a similarly tight race. A Purple Strategies poll found Obama up 1 at 47-46. An NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll last week showed the two candidates knotted at 48 percent each. A poll from Democratic Public Policy Polling (PPP), however, showed the president with a strong 4-point lead at 51-47.

Colorado is one of 12 battlegrounds won by Obama in 2008 that will likely determine the outcome of this year’s race.
