According to a post by the Rasmussen Reports on Monday morning, Mitt Romney attracted from 49% of voters across the US, while President Obama only had 48%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. Romney was leading by 3 percent last week.
As noted in the report, their final presidential polls will be released on early Tuesday morning, after conducting their last survey on Monday night. Their final swing state polls including for Ohio, Virginia, and New Hampshire will be released later Monday. Their latest Electoral College Map shows that Obama is leading.
Apparently, Romney is now back on his narrow advantage over Obama for the Rasmussen presidential polls, although the latest and final NBC News/WSJ poll showed that Obama is leading by 1%, 48% to 47%. Both candidates were tied at 49% at CNN/ORC International survey this Sunday, November 4.
Based on the trend of their polls, Obama was leading before the first presidential debate, but it later went the other way around and Mitt Romney has reached the 50% of the survey, and he enjoyed a comfortable lead for a few days. Nevertheless, the lead of each candidate became slimmer as Election Day comes nearer.
Meanwhile, Obama and Romney remain tied at 49% each for the likely voters of Ohio and Wisconsin; but the president led by 5% in Michigan, 52% to 47%. That survey was conducted last Thursday, November 1 to 750 Likely Voters, which had a margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
