Gallup: Romney Leads 49-47, No Change Since Friday

Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama among likely voters nationwide, 49 percent to 47 percent, in Sunday’s edition of Gallup’s daily tracking poll.  The poll was conducted Oct. 7-13.  

It’s the third consecutive day the Republican nominee has led the president by such a margin in Gallup’s tracking.  Obama has not led Romney among likely voters in the national tracking survey since Gallup shifted to the narrower sample last week.

The PollTracker Average currently shows Romney with a narrow lead, 47.6 percent to 46.4 percent.
