    Well, several Polls are now showing Romney hitting the crucial 50% mark, or surpassing it. That's a very good sign for him.

    According to today’s Gallup tracking poll, Mitt Romney’s lead over incumbent President Barack Obama has stretched to a five point margin. Romney is now up among likely voters 51% to 46%. Yesterday, the tracking poll had Romney up by only three points, 50% to 47%.

    The lead is broadening.

    That’s no doubt due to President Obama’s insistence on going small with his campaign. From Big Bird to binders to bayonets to ads suggesting that voting for Obama is like losing your virginity, this campaign has minimized the issues the American people face. And it’s paying the price for it.

    The trends are clearly against Barack Obama. It has been three weeks – the October 9, 2012, tracking poll – since Barack Obama was even tied with Romney. And after the final presidential debate, which liberals widely believed Barack Obama won, the polls have not shifted an inch overall.

    Gallup: Romney Up 51%-46%

    I figured Obama would have a difficult time.

    Not that Romney is trying real hard with the GW duplicate economic non plan but Obama is not a WASP and the recovery has been slow as WASPs wait for the government to build them a levee or new stadium of give them TIF money to start a new leg of their large business.

    .

    I still only care about the swing states.

    Obama's ahead still in Ohio and is also over 50% there. Are there models in which Romney can win the EC without Ohio?

    "Swingin' on the Gallups poll!"

    Zero is done. This Benghazi coverup is the final straw.

    When this election is over either Gallup or Nate Silver is going to have a lot of egg on their face.

    Seems that waym yet Rasmussen has the same numbers today:

    Swing State Tracking: Romney 51%, Obama 45%

    Daily Swing State Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™

    Or am I an idiot and Rasmussen and Gallup the same?

    According to the left Nate Silver is now the only accurate poll out there.

    Whew, good thing winning the popular vote doesn't mean you win the election. You had me worried there for a second.
