(Las Vegas, NV) — A new Rasmussen survey of likely Nevada voters shows President Obama making small gains in a race that is still too close to call.

The poll, taken before Tuesday’s second presidential debate, shows Obama with 50% support to Mitt Romney’s 47%. Last week, the candidates were tied at 47% apiece.

Breaking it down by party, Obama earns 92% support from Nevada Democrats surveyed, while 86% of the Republicans back Romney. Among voters not affiliated with either political party, Obama leads 56% to 42%.

The poll claims a 4.5% margin of error.
