NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- With a bit more than two weeks until Election Day, the presidential race looks like a dead heat, according to a national poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal.
The poll, which was conducted after the two candidates sparred in their second debate, shows President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney each getting 47% among likely voters, NBC News reported on its Web site.
The poll shows support grew for Romney during the first two debates. An earlier NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll, which was conducted before the debates, gave the president a 3-point lead over his Republican rival, 49% to 44%, the Web site also said.
