Poll Shows Romney Leading Obama 49-44 Percent

JON E. DOUGHERTY, NEWSROOM AMERICA

A new daily presidential tracking survey has found presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney leading President Barack Obama 49-44 percent, polling firm Rasmussen Reports said Tuesday.

Tracking polls at this point in the race are not much of an indicator as to who will ultimately win Nov. 6, but they are useful gauges of where the candidates currently stand and what issues might be influencing voters’ opinions. In this particular case, the influencing factor could be tied to the economy and, more importantly, how Americans view it, as well as who is better suited to improve economic conditions.

“The uptick for Romney comes as investor confidence has fallen six points in the wake of last week’s disappointing jobs report,” Rasmussen said. “Looking ahead five years, just 44 percent of Americans believe the nation’s economy will be stronger than it is today. That’s the lowest level of long-term optimism ever measured.”

That said, the survey warned that the race has been, and remains, statistically close.

“Romney has had the advantage on six of the last 12 days, and Obama has held the edge six times. It remains to be seen whether today’s results represent a lasting change or are merely statistical noise,” the survey said.

Besides jobs and the economy, Americans are most concerned about health care, government ethics and corruption, taxes and energy policy, Rasmussen said.
