Gallup’s new daily tracking poll shows that Mitt Romney has opened up a five percentage point lead over President Barack Obama.

In only the poll’s second day, Gallup says Romney now leads by 48 percent to 43 over the president.

The tracking poll debuted on Monday showing that the gap was 47 to 45 in favor of Romney.

The survey gives Romney a bigger lead than the more longstanding Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll, which currently has the former Massachusetts governor leading by a single point, 46 to 45 over Obama.

However three new polls had the president ahead, although all showed that Romney is narrowing the gap. Reuters gave Obama a four-point lead, 47 to 43, Pew also had him up by four points, 49 to 45, while CNN had the president up by nine points, 52 to 43. All had Obama ahead by double digits last month.

After the Gallup figures were included, the RealClearPolitics poll of polls, which aggregates all surveys, gives Obama a 2.9-point lead over Romney, a drop of three-tenths of a point from Tuesday morning.
