In the final Rasmussen poll before the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney has taken the lead over Barack Obama 49% to 48%.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 48%. Two percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided.
Rasmussen Reports will conduct our final tracking poll tonight and release the results early Tuesday morning. Later today, we will issue our final swing state polls including Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire.
Mitt Romney also leads Obama in the daily Gallup poll, 49% to 48%. . What we are witnessing in the polls is that an incumbent president cannot poll over 50%. If as Gallup is reporting that early voting is breaking for Obama by only 49% to 48%, Obama is in for a long election night. Barack Obama would have needed to have early voting break by a much greater number than 1%.
The polling is over and it’s time to vote. Let’s vote for America, not revenge.
