Final NewsmaxZogby Poll: Romney, Obama in Dead Heat

Tuesday, 06 Nov 2012 11:28 AM

The final NewsmaxZogby National Tracking Poll has President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in a dead heat, with Obama capturing 46.6 percent of the vote, and Romney 45.8 percent.
 
The poll includes Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, who captures 2.3 percent of the vote. It was conducted November 3 through November 5, and has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.

“This tie has a certain destiny to it,” pollster John Zogby said. “Neither candidate has been able to hold [on] to any lead for any length of time — and this is more about where the country is than even about the candidates.

“Each candidate is doing reasonably well with his own base, as I have reported right along. I think that fear of the 'other' has as much to do with solidifying their base as enthusiasm for the candidates,” Zogby said. “I am including the minor candidates because each in his or her own way is weighing in on the national vote.

“The popular vote is very important for either candidate to declare legitimacy of victory,” he added. “What concerns me is whether or not the 'defeated' side will feel empowered to concede.”
