Mitt Romney maintains a three-point lead over Barack Obama, according to the latest Rasmussen tracking poll:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 45% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.
The recent numbers may have been impacted by a number of factors. Clearly, one is the fading of the president’s convention bounce.
The RealClearPolitics national average, however, shows Obama leading Romney by three points.
