Washington (CNN) – With three days to go until the start of the Republican convention, President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney remain deadlocked in the race for the White House, according to a new national survey.
A CNN/ORC International poll released Friday also indicates Romney’s favorable rating among those likely to vote in the presidential election is in the same ballpark as the president’s, and the survey also points to a slightly higher level of enthusiasm for Republicans than Democrats.
