Mitt Romney's late charge has wiped out President Barack Obama's polling lead and left the White House rivals in the tightest of races, raising the stakes of their second debate on Tuesday.

The Republican presidential challenger has built momentum since winning the pair's first showdown and Obama's electoral firewall -- his grip on a series of key swing states -- appears to have been weakened if not yet breached.

Both the Democrat and the Republican were locked away on Monday in intense preparation for their clash at Hofstra University, New York, with Obama needing a comeback punch after a listless showing in their debut encounter.
