Rasmussen Reports released its latest presidential polls for Thursday, November 1, 2012 and showed that Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are in close fight, with Romney maintaining a 2% lead over Obama, which has been the same in the past three days, with the US election coming in less than a week.
According to a post at RasmussenReports.com this Thursday morning, Mitt Romney has attracted 49% of likely voters across the US, while President Obama had 47%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, while three percent (3%) remain undecided. Romney was leading by 3 percent last Sunday.
For likely voters in Wisconsin, Obama and Romney have 49% each and two percent (2%) remain undecided this Thursday, with the data remain unchanged since last week. Twenty-five percent (25%) of likely Wisconsin voters have already voted, and the president is now leading, 56% to 41% among these voters.
On the other hand, fourteen percent (14%) of Wisconsin voters reportedly rate the US economy as good or excellent, while 38% described it as poor; while forty-two percent (42%) said that it is getting better and 37% are suggesting that it is getting worse, with this Rasmussen presidential survey held last Monday, October 29.
Meanwhile, Obama leads by three percentage points over Romney, 49% to 46% in Wisconsin, based on the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist presidential polls on Wednesday, which was to be still within the survey’s margin of error, noting that the president had a 6-point lead in early October.
For Iowa, the same survey showed that Obama is leading by 6 points among likely voters, 50% to 44%. But for Rasmussen Reports, Romney is one-point ahead of the president in Iowa, 49% to 48%. Two percent (2%) prefer other candidates, and one percent (1%) is still undecided.
