Rasmussen: Romney 49%, Obama 47%
Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and another two percent (2%) are undecided.
Rasmussen is considered to be more conservative-oriented than most polls. Of the tracking polls highlighted by RealClearPolitics, it has consistently shown Romney doing better than other polls do.
The results of the Rasmussen poll are based upon nightly interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, only about two-thirds of the interviews for today’s update were conducted after the presidential debate. Sunday morning’s update will be the first national polling based entirely upon post-debate interviews.
