Polls: Obama up 2 points in Nevada, Romney holds same edge in New Hampshire

While Nevada only represents six electoral votes, and the winner of New Hampshire will only capture four, the states could play a crucial role in what is expected to be a photo finish. The president has been marginally favored in both races to date; Romney has not led in a poll of Nevada since April, while the RealClearPolitics average of polls gives the president a 1.4 percent lead in Nevada.

But the ARG polls are both worse than the president's showing in other recent state-level polls in the two swing states, and indication Obama may not yet have fully halted Romney's momentum.

The polls each carried a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
