Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll today puts Romney ahead of President Obama 49% to 47% among nationwide voters.
Important to note, according to Rasmussen: approximately one-third of the data was collected before Romney’s strong debate performance this past Wednesday. It looks like “[t]he margin of sampling error” for Rasmussen’s daily tracking polls, however, falls at +/- 3 percentage points.
Still, the poll is good news for the GOP challenger.
“Today is the first time Romney has been ahead by even a single point since mid-September,” Rasmussen states.
This news follows the positive trend of polling numbers for Romney in key swing states that Guy chronicled yesterday.
