NewsmaxZogby National Tracking: Romney Leads by 3 Points

Wednesday, 31 Oct 2012 09:28 AM

The NewsmaxZogby Tracking Poll released Wednesday has Romney expanding his lead in the national race to 3 points — 48 percent to Obama's 45 percent.

Pollster John Zogby commented: "This is not a significant lead for Romney, but he continues to move up while Obama slides down. An incumbent polling only 45 percent with one week to go is simply not good. Romney now leads 47 percent to 38 percent among independents.

"The two candidates are now pretty much tied, 48 percent to 47 percent Romney, among the 1 in 4 who have already voted. Obama holds a big lead among those 12 percent who say they are very likely to vote, 50 percent to 35 percent. He has to ensure that they actually do. Is the president hurt by voters in his base who can't get to the polls because of the storm or is he helped by looking like a good crisis manager?"
