New research shows that Barack Obama is slightly ahead of Mitt Romney in the final days of the presidential campaign after a week of deadlock. Obama’s increases in support appear to have come from women, older voters, and political moderates.
In Pew Research Center's final survey of the presidential campaign before the elections tomorrow, President Barack Obama has 48% of the likely voters on his side a 3% lead over Mitt Romney's 45%. Pew's final estimate of the national popular vote is Obama 50% and Romney 47%, when the undecided vote is allocated between the two candidates.
Pew say their research disclosed, only a week ago, the candidates being neck and neck but that Obama had edged forward in the last few days most likely due to his handling of Hurricane Sandy.
