Last month, an ABC News-Washington Post poll suggested the 2012 presidential contest will be extremely close. If the November election were held today, 49 percent of voters would cast a ballot for President Obama and 46 percent for Republican Candidate Mitt Romney. That's within the margin of error.
Over the next five months, both candidates will spend a lot of time, money, and political capital in a handful of swing states to secure enough electoral votes on election day. That does not sit well with everyone.
