A new poll puts US President Barack Obama and his Republican rival, Mitt Romney dead even in their race for the White House on the eve of their final televised debate.

Sunday's survey, by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, showed the candidate were tied among likely voters with 47 per cent each.

In the new survey, Obama, however, was leading Romney 49 percent to 44 percent among the wider pool of all registered voters.

But the poll also showed improved voter confidence in Romney.

A total 47 percent of registered voters said they were either optimistic and confident, or satisfied and hopeful, that Romney would do a good job as president.
