By Larry Clifton     Oct 26, 2012 in Politics
Washington - Friday’s Gallup daily tracking poll shows Mitt Romney topping Barack Obama by five points in the presidential election. Romney has maintained a lead throughout October, according to Gallup’s daily polls.
Romney won 51% of the votes compared to Obama’s 46% in the poll of likely voters. The Gallup poll results show Obama losing a point from yesterday’s national survey while Romney gained a point.
The survey, a rolling seven-day average through Oct. 25, includes three days of reaction to Monday night’s foreign-policy debate in Boca Raton, Fla.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, Romney leads Obama by less than 1 percentage point, 47.8 to 47.1, according to The Hill.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Thursday shows Romney in the lead, 49% to Obama's 48%.
According to an AP-Gfk poll released Thursday, Romney has erased Obama's edge among women. The poll shows a tie between Romney and Obama among women, 47% to 47%.
Meanwhile, Romney is crisscrossing the country asking the country to vote for a "shift course."
