Rasmussen Shock: Romney Leads Obama: 47 - 45%Submitted by Peace Gold Love on Mon, 09/17/2012 - 12:50
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 45% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
Eighty-five percent (85%) of conservatives support Romney, and 91% of liberals plan to vote for Obama. As they have throughout the campaign, voters under 40 tend to prefer the president, while their elders favor Romney.
When “leaners” are included, the race is tied with both Obama and Romney at 48%. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question.
