The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 50 percent of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 46 percent.

Two percent prefer some other candidate, and another 2 percent are undecided.

"This is the fifth consecutive day that Romney has been at the 50 percent level of support," said Scott Rasmussen. "He has enjoyed a three- or four-point edge on each of those days."

At the state level, the race is tied in Wisconsin, a result confirmed by the fact that the Badger State is receiving visits from Obama, Romney, Paul Ryan and Joe Biden.

"The importance of this state in the Electoral College battle is hard to overstate," said Rasmussen. "Wisconsin may be the new Ohio this year. That’s a startling result given that the president won Wisconsin by 14 points in 2008."

Romney is up by 2 points in Florida, moving that state back into the toss-up column, according to Rasmussen, who added that the president has 237 Electoral Votes compared to Romney's 206.

"The magic number needed to win the White House is 270. Eight states with 95 Electoral College votes remain toss-ups," he said. "In addition to Florida, the battleground states are Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin."

New polling from North Carolina continues to show Romney with a 6-point lead in the Tar Heel State, while Obama is up by 5 points in Pennsylvania, Rasmussen noted.

"The Pennsylvania Senate race is now a surprising toss-up," he noted, predicting that Democrats and Republicans would each end up with 47 Senate seats.

"These totals include four states leaning towards the Democrats and four leaning to the GOP," he said. "Other than Pennsylvania, there are five remaining toss-ups: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Montana, Virginia and Wisconsin."
