This may make for a nervous Tuesday night in Chicago for President Obama.

Just as the polls for the last three days hinted that the President was holding a narrow but resilient lead in the key battleground states, new surveys have been released a short time ago.

These new polls suggest that states the President was supposed to be easily ahead in - like Michigan and Pennsylvania - may be very tight.

If that data is supported by other indicators in the next 36 hours, that's a major worry for the President and his top strategists.
