MADISON (WKOW) -- Presidential candidate Mitt Romney claims bragging rights in the latest ABC News, Washington Post tracking poll.
The poll claims 49 percent of likely voters support him versus President Obama's 48 percent. Without rounding up or down, the contest is even closer. The candidates are separated by just seven-hundredths of a point.
Romney may have hit a snag after another Republican candidate made controversial comments about abortion. This may impact the way women vote in this presidential election year.
Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said even in cases of rape, the mother should have the child because it was "intended."
The Romney campaign has since distanced itself from Mourdock saying, "Governor Romney disagrees with Richard Mourdock's comments, and they do not reflect his views."
President Obama and Romney are trying to reach the few undecided voters. Romney will make campaign stops in Nevada and Iowa on Wednesday, while President Obama will be in Iowa, Colorado and Nevada.
