(WTVR) - Just 12 days until the election and the candidates are not letting up.

A recent poll by the Associated Press shows Mitt Romney has erased the President's lead among women voters.

At the same time the President has largely eliminated Romney's edge among men.

These results leave the Presidential race in a virtual dead heat with Romney favored at 47 percent of likely voters and President Obama with 45 percent.
