Poll: Obama, Romney remain close


10/1/12 4:09 PM EDT

The latest survey from CNN finds the presidential race within the margin of error just two days before the first presidential debate.

The survey finds President Obama edging Mitt Romney 50 percent to 47 percent among likely voters.

Obama's approval rating is now 49 percent among all adults, with 48 percent disapproval.

The poll finds that any convention bounce has dissipated, with Obama and Romney posting similar numbers from before either party convention.

"That's a strong suggestion that whatever bounce President Obama received from his convention has, as expected, faded away," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. "That's why they call them 'bounces'."

As echoed in previous polls, Obama maintains a 9 point lead among women, beating Romney 53 percent to 44 percent. Romney Is beating Obama among men by 50 percent to 47 percent, and is leading among independent voters, 49 percent to 41 percent.

CNN interviewed 883 registered voters and 783 likely voters, giving the survey a sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points for questions only of likely voters and three percentage points among registered voters.
