    Lots of poll data to peruse today, but let's start with the Washington Post/ABC tracking poll. For the third straight day, it reports that Mitt Romney has a one-point lead over Barack Obama, 49/48 --- but its internals tell a different story. And one reason for that is its shifting sample, which has gotten significantly more Democratic.The Post reports the topline numbers: For the third consecutive day of the Washington Post-ABC News national tracking poll, a single — statistically insignificant — percentage point separates the two presidential contenders: 49 percent of likely voters back Republican Mitt Romney, and 48 percent...

    The Cleveland Leader ^ | October 29, 2012 | Eugene McCormick
    Supporters of Barack Obama may be breathing a little easier this morning as Public Policy Polling show the president with a 51-47 advantage over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The new numbers come a day after Ohio news organizations showed a dead heat at 49-49 according to their data. What the previous poll did not show was the result of the third, and final, debate between the two men who are battling for residency for four years in the White House. Last week, PPP showed Obama leading only 49-48. [Snip] PPP surveyed 718 likely voters throughout the Buckeye State. The...

    Business Insider ^ | 10/28/2012 | Brett LoGiurato
    Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama by a single point in today's Public Policy Polling daily tracking survey, but the numbers inside the poll display a clearly worse picture for the president. Romney's one-point lead is a slight increase from Saturday, when the candidates were tied. But a deep dive into the numbers paint the picture of a president whose approval is on the decline and is struggling to pick up votes with Independents. Consider the following numbers: * Obama's approval-to-disapproval rating sits at just 44-52, which is actually worse than Gallup's tracking on Saturday. * Obama is losing the...

    I'd be the first to tell people that my state is a quadrennial sucker bet for Republicans. In 2008, no one thought we had a prayer, but in 2000 and 2004, Republicans actually thought they had a chance to break the Democrats' presidential winning streak, as the state last went to the GOP in 1972. I've been hearing Republicans get optimistic here again, but I've been highly skeptical of the prospects for Mitt Romney to even get close here.Until now: As the presidential race tightens across the country, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found that it is narrowing...

    As the presidential race tightens across the country, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found that it is narrowing here as well, with President Obama holding a 3-point lead and Republican Mitt Romney making gains in the state. The poll shows Obama with support from 47 percent of likely voters and Romney earning backing from 44 percent -- a lead within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Last month, Obama had an 8-percentage point advantage in the Minnesota Poll. Romney has apparently cut into the Democrat's advantage among women since then and picked...
