Presidential Race Tightens Slightly

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds President Obama heads into the first presidential debate with a narrow lead over Mitt Romney, 49% to 46%.

Obama's lead is down slightly from the five-point lead he enjoyed in mid-September, just after the two parties' conventions.

Key findings: "Mr Obama maintains commanding leads among Hispanics, young voters and women, with his share of the crucial Hispanic bloc appearing only to widen. A whopping 71% of likely Hispanic voters said they plan to vote for Mr. Obama. Mr. Romney holds a strong margin of support among white voters and men, and he appears to be gaining a little strength among the college educated. His strengths there, though, aren't sufficient at this point to offset weaknesses elsewhere."
