Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has increased his lead over President Barack Obama to 5 points among likely voters in the latest Gallup Daily Tracking Poll.
The former Massachusetts governor now leads Obama, 51 percent to 46 percent, according to the latest survey of 2,700 likely voters conducted Oct. 19-25.
That’s up 2 points from Romney’s lead on Wednesday – and it’s even with the former Massachusetts governor’s lead on Tuesday, the day after his final debate with the president at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.
But among registered voters, the presidential race is a dead heat, at 48 percent each, according to the polling firm.
Gallup is now calling the race a dead heat.
