Latest Presidential Polls 2012 Show Obama Slightly Leading The Race
Is it Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? This will be the most important question of millions of Americans as they go to polling places on November 6, 2012 to cast their votes on the next President of the United States.
Who has the edge? Apparently, it’s really hard to determine as the battle for presidential race between the two is very close. However, the latest Presidential polls average from Real Clear Politics (RCP) published on November 2, 2012 showed that the incumbent Democratic President is leading but very slight over his Republican running mate.
As of this writing, the RCP national polling average covering the period from October 22 to November 1 has incumbent US President Barack Obama slightly leading with 47.5 percent as against his running mate Mitt Romney at 47.2 percent. The remaining 5.3 percent of the pie still remains undecided.
The Presidential polls conducted by ABC News/ Washington Post, CBS New/ New York Times, National Journal, IBD/TIPP, and Politico have results all in favor of Obama. Only two polls, Gallup and NPR, have Romney as leading. The rest, Rasmussen Reports, Fox News, and NPR, have each results as tie.
Still, with only three days remaining before Tuesday’s presidential election, everything can change. Mitt Romney is reportedly trying to cut Obama‘s lead further as his team confirmed that the Republican nominee will be campaigning in Pennsylvania on Sunday, November 4.
Meanwhile, after “Frankenstorm” Sandy hit key states in the United States, Obama is reportedly banking on his government’s response. In a recent ABC News/ Washington Post poll, 78 percent of the Americans surveyed were satisfied with the Obama’s government handling the situation.
Political analysts also said that the endorsement of Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York in favor of Obama has boosted his chances of retaining hold of the White House. Bloomberg said that it was the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy that brought him off the sidelines and declare his support for Obama.
“When I step into the voting booth, I think about the world I want to leave my two daughters, and the values that are required to guide us there. The two parties’ nominees for president offer different visions of where they want to lead America,” Bloomberg said.
While the two Presidential running mates have differences on policies on several key political issues, Tuesday’s election date will tell the fate of America. God Bless America and may the right leader wins!
