article imageRomney maintains lead in Monday's Gallup poll

By Larry Clifton     Oct 22, 2012 in Politics
The latest Gallup Poll published Monday has presidential candidate Mitt Romney holding a 6-point advantage over incumbent Barack Obama, with 51% of likely voters breaking for Romney and 45% supporting Obama.
Romney retains a 1-point lead among registered voters. The rolling seven-day survey taken between Oct 15-21, 2012 reflects a sustained Romney lead throughout October that is considered outside of the poll’s margin of error.
Meanwhile, a Rasmussen swing state poll has Romney beating Obama 49% to 46% while Romney bests the President by two, 49% to 47% in the nationwide presidential race. In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin that year.
Romney and Obama meet for their third and final nationally televised debate in Florida beginning at 9 p.m. ET. Monday. Romney handily won the first debate in Colorado by most polling while Obama was declared the winner of the second debate in most polls.
Romney jumped in national polls after the first debate and yet Obama continues to struggle, even though polls show he had the upper hand in the last debate in New York, according to polls. With polls now showing the two in a virtual toss up in battleground states and Romney leading in many national polls, Romney has opened up a path to victory among electoral delegates as well as the popular vote, according to polls.
