DENVER -- The Denver Post released a new poll at noon Friday that paints a much tighter pictures of the presidential race in Colorado than another survey released Thursday.

The new numbers from an automated telephone survey of more than 600 likely Colorado voters by Survey USA shows President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in a statistical dead heat.

The margin, Obama ahead of Romney 47-46, is well within the poll's four percent margin of error.

Three of four respondents to the automated telephone survey were reached on their home phones.

Of the sample, 34 percent were self-identified Republicans and 34 percent said they're Democrats, while 30 percent identified themselves as unaffiliated voters.

A poll of 500 likely Colorado voters released Thursday by OnSight Public Affairs and Project New America, two Democratic-affiliated groups, showed Obama with a five-point lead over Romney.
