WAPO-ABC Tracking Poll: Mitt Romney 49%, Barack Obama 48%

Slip, Sliding Away …

The latest WAPO-ABC presidential tracking poll now has Mitt Romney ahead of Barack Obama, 49% to 48%. When asked about the most important issue facing Americans, 50% of likely voters say Romney while 45% side with the president.

The new Washington Post-ABC News national tracking poll has 49 percent of likely voters supporting Republican Mitt Romney, and 48 percent President Obama, a seesawing result that shows the continued narrowness of the contest.

The change from yesterday’s Post-ABC tracking poll, which showed the race 49 to 48 percent the other way, is statistically insignificant, and the numbers do not include any public reaction to the third and final presidential debate Monday night. Almost all of Monday’s interviews were conducted before the debate started.

The polling trends are all starting to swing to Mitt Romney. Gallup and Rasmussen both have Romney now polling at or above 50%.

Think Obama is not becoming desperate and knows that he is behind in the polls and about to be kicked to the political curb? As reported at the WAPO, Obama sent the following email to supports, “I don’t want to lose this election.”
