Romney Momentum

October 17, 2012

Mitt Romney leads Barack Obama by an average of 47.7% to 47.5% in national polls conducted over the last two weeks, with today’s Gallup poll of likely voters putting him at 52% to Mr. Obama’s 45%.  This is Mr. Romney's second day above 50% with Gallup’s likely voters, something Mr. Obama has not yet done.  Mr. Romney has now tied President George W. Bush’s best 2004 number in this Gallup poll, and today’s numbers are almost identical to the October 16, 2004 tracking when Mr. Bush led John Kerry 52% to 44%.  Many Obama supporters have tried to draw false parallels with this race and the 2004 Election; however, they probably weren’t counting on this comparison.
