Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama by 5 points among likely voters in the latest Gallup Daily Tracking Poll.

That's down a point from Romney's 6-point lead among likely voters on Monday – and is 2 points lower than his 7-point lead on Sunday. The 7-point lead was the largest of the campaign, Business Insider reports.

Romney's lead among registered voters remained at 48 to 47 percent.

Tuesday’s results included a rolling average of polling from last Tuesday through Monday.

There was no effect from Monday night’s final debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.

Meanwhile, Obama's approval rating rose to 51 percent, above the "safe" 50 percent level for re-election, Business Insider reports.
