USA Today/Gallup Poll released its last poll ahead of the presidential election of swing states and found voters “have become as enthusiastic and engaged in the 2012 presidential election as they were in the historic contest four years ago.”

The poll found that President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied in some battleground states, 48% to 48% but the results indicate a surge from the president who has now closed a four point gap from early October — the first debate where he delivered an abysmal performance. The poll was taken in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
