The race for the White House remains a dead heat, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll, despite several weeks of tough attacks by Democrats on Republican Mitt Romney's tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital and his refusal to release more of his tax returns.
The poll shows Romney at 47 percent and Obama at 46 percent among registered voters, a difference that's within the poll's three-point margin of error.
Obama is desperately trying to distract voters from his terrible record on the economy with his furious attacks on Romney's business background. It's sad and transparent. Thankfully, it looks like most voters aren't taking the bait.
