Romney up 51 to 45
The Gallup tracking poll is the only one with the lopsided result you posted. The ABC/Washington Post poll has Obama up 49 to 46.
Moreover, that Gallup Poll does not take into account Tuesday's debate where Romney got creamed.
Hmmm, followed the link. O is up a fraction. All polls show it very close. Look at the data, Gallup isn't close to consensus. Even FoxMussen has it closer than Gallup. I never thought I would see that.
Rasmussen Tracking 10/16 - 10/18 Tie
IBD/TIPP Tracking 10/13 - 10/18 Obama +2
Gallup Tracking 10/12 - 10/18 Romney +6
Hartford Courant/UConn 10/11 - 10/16 Obama +3
ABC News/Wash Post 10/10 - 10/13 Obama +3

"According to the latest poll, Romney leads Obama among likely voters, 51 to 45 percent. This is Romney's biggest lead since Gallup began tracking likely voters earlier in Oct."
Actually I think the majority of welare recipients will vote for Obama. And please dont stereotype us southerners. I actually wear shoes and have most of my teeth.
That's what one would think but the fact is the southern states are among the poorist in the nation and they also took largest proportion of federal money compared to what they paid into it. The reason why southerners vote Republican which advocate tax break to the rich and less assistance to the poor is beyond me.
I have no idea why you guys are following the poll ? Just saw Obama less than 1% over Romney. So what ?
This jazz changes constantly, so why are you so hang up about the numbers. The polls are not going to help anyone in voting. Urr, unless people are still on the fence...fine, they can stay there...it's just going to be a weird looking fence.
The Washionton post article I linked to explained your question well.
