* CBS/NYT: Obama 46%, Romney 46%
* Pew Research: Obama 49%, Romney 45%

The numbers to watch are the individual battleground state polls, with the key states being Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and New Hampshire. We haven't gotten too many updated state polls since Santorum exited the race, but we do have new numbers from Florida:

* Public Policy: Obama 50%, Romney 45%
