According to a post by the Rasmussen Reports on Sunday morning, both presidential candidates have attracted 49% each of likely voters across the US. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. Mitt Romney was leading by 3 percent last week.
As noted in the report, their latest figures include both those early voters and those likely to vote. President Obama is currently leading in the early vote results, while Romney leads among those who are likely to vote, with the result of the elections to depend on the racial and ethnic mix of the electorate.
In addition, thirty-nine percent (39%) of voters are being projected to be Democrats and 37% for the Republicans. Both candidates reportedly doing well within their respective parties, but the the 65-year old former Massachusetts governor has a nine-point advantage over the president for the unaffiliated voters.
Meanwhile, Rasmussen Reports is now estimating that the total white votes result will likely be the same with of the 2008 presidential election; and that a huge percentage of the early voters are likely to be black voters, larger than that of any other segment of the electorate.
As reported earlier, Obama and Romney are also tied at 49% for Wisconsin and Ohio, based on Rasmussen presidential polls conducted on October 29, and November 1, respectively. Its latest Electoral College projections show that Obama is ahead of Romney, 237 to 206, with each candidate needing 270 to win the election.
