Two final tracking polls split between Obama and Romney

Two final tracking polls from Gallup and the Washington Post/ABC News were released Monday, with the former showing Mitt Romney up 1 point among likely voters and the latter favoring President Obama by 3 points.

Gallup says Romney leads Obama by 1 point among likely voters, 49 to 48 percent. The poll's margin of error is 2 percentage points, meaning the race is a statistical tie. (Three percent of likely voters told Gallup they were undecided.)

The Washington Post/ABC News tracking poll has Obama at 50 percent and Romney at 47 percent among likely voters. The poll has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points, which means a small portion of the president's lead is statistically significant. The poll also found that 55 percent of likely voters believe Obama will win the election.
