A new Gallup poll has been asking registered voters, "Suppose the presidential election were held today, and it included Barack Obama and Joe Biden as the Democratic Party's candidates and Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as the Republican Party's candidates. Who would you vote for?"
The results of the poll show Romney ahead with 52% of the vote to Obama's 45%.
The poll of 2,700 probable voters has seen Romney gradually gain ground since 7th October.
The presidential candidates were at a charity dinner in Manhatten, a light hearted event where they poke fun at themselves and each other.
You can tell a lot about this campaign from where the candidates travel. That's because where they go is where they need votes.
Ohio is the state that both candidates want to win and the the rock stars of the Democratic Party are in town in a bid to help secure it.
