Presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads incumbent Barack Obama by 5 points in Gallup’s Tuesday Daily Tracking Poll one day after the third and final presidential debate.
Romney leads Obama 51% to 46% in the poll of likely voters. Gallup has Romney over Obama by one in the survey of registered voters.
Romney has maintained a lead of at least five points each day for a week and before today led by 6 and 7 points for six days straight.
Meanwhile, a Reuters-Ipsos poll released Monday have the two even at 46% and An ABC News-Washington Post poll also has the candidates in a statistical dead heat, with Obama at 49% and 48% for Romney, according to a report by The Hill.
A fresh Rasmussen poll has Romney beating Obama by 5 in Florida, 51-46, but Fox News shows Romney up 48-45 and a poll by Democratic-affiliated Public Policy Polling (PPP) has Romney edging Obama by 1 in Florida at 48-47.
In Virginia, Rasmussen shows Romney beating Obama by 3 and Republicans are suggesting they are now in control of North Carolina, Virginia and Florida.
Likewise, Democrats are claiming they control Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which leaves Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Colorado and Ohio as battleground toss up states.
Ohio is by far the biggest electoral prize of the remaining states and Obama has lost a significant lead there. Currently, the RCP average of polls shows Obama only up by 1.9 percentage points in the battleground state.
The Gallup daily tracking poll has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
