According to a post at RasmussenReports.com this Monday morning, Mitt Romney has attracted 49% of likely voters across the US, while President Obama had 47%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and another two percent (2%) remain undecided. Romney‘s lead on Sunday was 3 percent.

Apparently, this is the first time in 7 days that Romney had votes lower than 50% and had a two-point percentage points over Obama. During the past 6 days, the 65-year old former Massachusetts governor is leading by a three- or four-point edge over the president.

Meanwhile, 54% of US likely voters are against Obamacare, or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which Rasmussen Reports noted is the same percentage of those who support its repeal, a week after the law was passed in March 23, 2010. Fifty percent of voters said they believe the cost of health care will rise due to the law.

On the other hand, 39% of likely voters are in favor to Obamacare. This includes 43% who are Strongly Favor repeal, and 30% who are Strongly Opposed to it. In addition, 80% of likely voters said they believe that Mitt Romney may repeal the Obamacare law if he wins the presidency this coming November 6 election.

Rasmussen Reports said that the telephone survey was made to 1,000 Likely Voters on October 27-28, 2012 (Saturday-Sunday), and that the the margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
