Presidential Race Tightens in Missouri

Romney's lead has slipped to one skinny point


A recent poll indicates the presidential race may be tightening in Missouri, but don't expect plenty of campaign stops by President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

Not yet, anyway.

A SurveyUSA poll conducted for four Missouri television stations shows the Republican Romney holding a 45 percent to 44 percent lead over Obama in the state, with 6 percent planning to vote for someone else and 5 percent undecided.
