A tightening of the gender gap and a closer race among political independents mark trends among likely voters the past several days, but with no meaningful change to the bottom line in the evenly matched 2012 presidential race.

Nationally, likely voters divide by 49-48 percent between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in the latest ABC News/Washington Post daily tracking poll. That's exactly where it's been in seven of the nine ABC/Post tracking poll releases since the start of last week, albeit with movement in some underlying measures – toward Romney in the middle of last week, then easing back since.

In the 11 states designated as battlegrounds by the ABC News Political Unit, moreover, it's 49-48 percent, Obama-Romney, in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, when all 12 nights of this daily tracking poll are combined.
