(CBS News) -- The latest round of polling out this weekend has not cleared up what President Obama's or Mitt Romney's prospects are for victory on Election Day.

New George Washington University/Politico and Wall Street Journal/NBC polls show the two tied among national likely voters going into Tuesday: 48 to 48 percent in the GWU/Politico survey, 48 to 47 percent in favor of Mr. Obama in the WSJ/NBC poll.

And if you needed more evidence, a Washington Post/ABC News poll out yesterday showed the two knotted up at 48 percent.

In the battleground states, it's not much different.

A new University of New Hampshire/WMUR poll has the two tied at 48 percent in the Granite State.

In Ohio, a Columbus Dispatch poll out today shows the president up 2 points over Romney, 50 to 48 percent, within the poll's margin of error.

One battleground state that shows a consistent bit of difference between the two is Iowa. A Des Moines Register poll released Saturday shows Mr. Obama with a five-point lead over Romney, 47 to 42 percent. A poll released Thursday by Marist/Wall Street Journal/NBC shows a similar lead for the president there: 50 to 44 percent.
