Mitt Romney holds a 22-percentage point lead among white voters, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll.

A total of 58 percent of whites say they support Romney while only 36 percent go for President Barack Obama.

However among black voters, Obama receives 88 percent support to Romney's 10 percent and in respondents classed as "other" the president gets 56 percent to Romney's 34 percent.

The stark racial divide is shown in the daily tracking poll released by Rasmussen on Wednesday. The overall figure gives Romney a 47 percent to 44 percent lead over Obama.

The poll also showed that 61 percent of African Americans believe the country is on the right track. Only 25 percent of whites feel the same.

Obama gets an approval rating of 87 percent among blacks but only 38 percent among whites. Those classified as "other" give him a 60 percent approval rate.
