A new Gallup survey has the presidential race tied at 47 percent apiece in a new national poll featuring pro-abortion President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, who is endorsed by pro-life groups.
About its newest poll, Gallup says:
These are the results when registered voters are asked: “Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party’s candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party’s candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?”
Those who are undecided are further asked if they lean more toward Obama or Romney and their leanings are incorporated into the results. Each seven-day rolling average is based on telephone interviews with approximately 3,050 registered voters; Margin of error is ±2 percentage points.

Seems that back in May, Romney was eerily accurate with his projection of 0bama’s support.
I still think this is going to be a rout. I think Obozo will lose bigger than Carter did in 1980 and may even approach McGovern’s loss.
Oops, Obama falling exactly as the press claims all the negatives are on Romney!
Expect to see AxelFRAUD knocking on Gallop’s door very soon. I suspect that since this is only “Registered voters” that with likely voters Romney is probably up between 4-5 points. This is just like Carter, Carter was leading, no one thought he would lose, than got the living snot kicked out of him
So Romney is actually about 10 points up.
These polls are very encouraging for Romney. My only fear is that Romney's campaign are overconfident - they need to campaign as though this was still a dead heat.
Any time the polls tighten the obama camp comes out with some new “surprise”. They are such a sleazy bunch.

Mitt Romney is Not Pro Life.
I do 5.6 posts per day, with 47 days till the election...
That makes 263.2 posts to go!
... 263.2 posts to go...
Unfortunately Gallup and Rasmussen are 180 degrees out of phase. Ones UP, the other is DOWN. Go figure.
Oh yeah? Well I'll see your 47% and raise you 8%...
Hey guys, Intrade still has Obama at 70% for re-election. I really see a buying opportunity on Romney stock here, I think the polls are going to continue to tighten then we’re going to hopefully see a Romney blowout as the polls get more real with likely voters and less oversampling, jmo.
Yes, republican turnout from the 2010 midterms should be the “oversample” - not demacrat turnout from 2008.
Romney is up by at least 10% which is a true blowout (historically)
Like you say, this is RV's, so it's skewed to Obama.
In 1980, Gallup had Carter ahead of Reagan by 4 points in mid September and ahead by 8 points October 1st! As we know, Reagan won by 9 points and carried 44 states.
I knew last week’s Gallop poll was total BS, especially after I heard how Axelrod threatened them. Another poll that I find interesting is how 55 percent of this country believe we are on the wrong track. So I am supposed to believe that 55 percent of Americans believe that this country is on the wrong track yet they will vote for Obama anyway? Its not possible, they think he sucks but will give him another shot at it LOL
It will come down to the debates(especially the 1st one) if Romney can kick Obama’s ass he will become President. He has to show why he would make a better leader, how he will make this country better. That is how Reagan won, everyone had Carter winning til that debate, then BAM total Reagan landslide. Even though the media will say that Obama won the debate it wont matter what they say, if Romney can resonate with the American people and give his plan to fix this economy he wins
Obama is not pro America...
