A Democratic poll released this morning found physician Ami Bera (D) and Rep. Dan Lungren (R) dead even in California's 7th district.

Both got 47 percent, with 6 percent undecided. It's their second straight matchup in the Sacramento area, but the district was altered in favor of Democrats during redistricting.

The poll also found President Barack Obama ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 52 percent to 44 percent.

House Majority PAC, the Service Employees International Union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and Friends of Democracy paid for the poll, which was conducted by Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group. It was conducted Aug. 21-23 and surveyed 401 likely voters with a 5-point margin of error.

This is one of a number of competitive House races in California this year. Roll Call rates the race as a Tossup.
