Obama Gets Positive Marks for Storm Response

Though likely voters give broadly positive ratings to President Obama's response to the devastating hurricane, the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll finds essentially no change: Likely voters are back to exactly an even split in preferences, 49% to 49%, between Obama and Mitt Romney - within a point or two of where the race has been all along.

Key finding: 78% rate Obama's response to the hurricane positively (as excellent or good), while just 8% see it negatively.

A new Fox News poll also shows the race tied at 46%.

However, a new National Journal poll shows Obama surging into a five point lead, 50% to 45%.
