Overall, 47 percent of registered voters say they plan to back Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in November, while 46 percent favor Romney and Ryan. That’s a statistical dead heat, not much changed from an AP-GfK survey in June.

At the same time, there’s a far wider gap when people are asked who they think will win. Some 58 percent of adults say they expect Obama to be re-elected, while just 32 percent say they think he’ll lose.
