PPP's newest Nevada poll finds Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 51/47, numbers exactly identical to what they were when we last polled the state two weeks ago.
Obama is already well on his way to winning Nevada based on early votes that have been cast in the week. Among those who say they've already voted he has a 61/39 advantage. Romney is up 51/46 with those planning to vote between now and election day.
The debates over the last couple weeks seem to have improved Obama's image in Nevada. 52% of voters approve of him now to 46% who disapprove, up from a 49/48 spread on our last poll. Nevadans think Obama won Monday's debate by a 50/38 margin. He has a 49/47 advantage over Romney in terms of who voters trust more about the economy and a 51/46 lead on foreign policy.
Obama's leading based on advantages of 69/28 with Hispanics, 82/12 with African Americans, 54/44 with women, and 58/39 with young voters. Romney's ahead with men (50/48), whites (57/42), and seniors (53/45). He also has a 53/44 advantage with independents but he'd probably need to take them by a wider margin than that to overcome the Democratic registration edge in the state.
