If you have been watching the Rasmussen and Gallup tracking polls over the past couple of weeks you will have noticed that Gallup lags but eventually follows Rasmussen. Given that Gallup is a 7 day poll and Rasmussen is a three day poll, this is not surprising.
What must be remembered is that Gallup is still using Registered Voters while Rasmussen uses Likely Voters so the two polls have to be viewed in light of that key difference. Rasmussen has shown a two point Romney lead for several days now and today Gallup has dropped Obama’s lead to a single point 47-46.
This race is very winnable for Mitt Romney.
