The End of Our National Tragedy? Romney Takes Lead in Final Rasmussen Poll …Update: Romney Leads in Gallup Poll Too

Is the end of our national tragedy near?

Mitt Romney took the lead today in the final Rasmussen poll before election day.
Romney leads President Obama by one point, 49-48.
Rasmussen reported:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 48%. Two percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided.

Rasmussen Reports will conduct our final tracking poll tonight and release the results early Tuesday morning. Later today, we will issue our final swing state polls including Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire.

Since mid-September, after the convention bounces faded, the candidates have generally been within three points of each other on a daily basis. Heading into the first presidential debate, Obama had a slight edge. After that debate, Romney had the advantage. For a few days in late October, Romney reached the 50% level of support and opened a modest lead. But the candidates have been tied or within two points for each other for the past eight days.

Now, it is time for all of us to get out and vote.
As Mitt Romney says – Vote for love of country.

UPDATE: Romney leads in the Gallup Daily Poll today too, 49-48.

    We win because America is smart. Smart people make mistakes, 2008 for instance. But smart people learn from their mistakes, and then fix them.

    We are fixing the biggest mistake ever made tomorrow.

    What is so amazing here, is that there couldn’t possibly be a more moderate candidate than Romney.
    Indeed, that is why he met such resistance among Republicans in the first place.

    And yet, the liberals, progressive “half” of the country continue to portray him as some sort of right-wing, extremist madman.

    I really hope that Mitt is paying attention. He cannot pull a George Bush for the next four years and “stay above the fray”, i.e. allow the left to demonize him and whatever policies he attempts to put in place with little or no response.

    He MUST go to the American people regularly, and EXPLAIN the facts of life to them. He must not allow the chris matthews of the world to routinely assassinate his character.

    Otherwise, he’ll be running against michelle obama in 2016.

    Obama is going to be humiliated, Romney 300+ electoral votes imho

    Even if the Democrats hold on to cotrol of the Senate, there is no reason to keep Harry Reid in charge. Let us hope that there are a few Democrats with brains. The Civil War is over, you lost. Let’s move on.

    I’ve been calling it 55-45 popular vote all year, and I stand by that.

    That said, the popular vote doesn’t elect the president, so national polls are really meaningless (and rarely honest anyway).

    I’ll go out on a limb and say 300+ electoral votes as well. What the heck!

    This isn’t the final Rasmussen poll. That will be released at 9:30 tomorrow morning.

  • neoavatara

    Just as a note, Rasmussen will have one more poll tomorrow morning.

    My take is far different than the tv pundits. ALL of whom have an agenda to keep people watching.

    The House seats are expected to remain in Republican hands. There is NOT going to be a wave election to undo the 2010 election. To me, this means that Romney, and every Senate candidate, in the vast majority of cases, will win those districts. I see an easily predictable landslide for Republicans.

    Look for the media to be shocked at how wrong they were throughout this contest.

    I had to cancel an appointment I had in Madison,WI because of the Obama rally. Hope his days are numbered.

    If Rassmussen has Romney ahead by 1 point, you can bet that Romney will win by more like 5 points at least. For whatever reason, Rassmussen always over weighs Democrats, except in 2008. That year he managed to give Republicans a little more weight, and we know the Republicans got spanked hard that year. In the 2010 mid terms Rassmussen went back to giving Democrats more weight, and the Democrats were beaten bloody in that election. In this year’s GOP primaries, Rassmussen was way off in many of the state primaries. In the 2009 VA Gubernatorial election Rassmussen came in 6th in polling accuracy, as once again he over weighed Democrat strength. As I said, if Rassmussen has Romney ahead by one point, Romney will do very well tomorrow.

    I will go with the Bickers and Berry prediction, Romney will win 330 electoral college votes. His popular vote totals will be in landslide territory.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Rasmussen is still using a D+4 sample in this poll. He also states that Romney takes Indies by 15. +2 GOP is undecided but he doesn’t give Romney.

    Rasmussens final poll is tomorrow. My bet he goes 51/48 Romney in last poll.

    Larkin commented:

    *sigh* They portray ALL Republicans that way. This is nothing new. It’s been going on for years.

    My research into the good work done by Newt Gingrich and Al Sharpton on education reform was a real eye-opening experience. What they do is bury anything sensible by a Republican in a garbage pile of lies about what he said.

    I noticed one of the reporters on FOX commenting about how polarized the electorate is. Well, if you believe all the lies told about Republicans, then you’ll hate ’em. And if you know where the lies are, and their origin, you will despise an easily identifiable group of other people.

    Kevin Dujan Final 2012 Election Predictions: Romney wins White House, GOP keeps House, and Republicans take Senate. 100% chance that Nate Silver’s career collapses into ruin.

    Last night, Karl Rove predicted a big win for Romney and an early night, based on the SAME polling information everyone else has. He waded into the internals and assumptions. He got asked why he reached different conclusions from those of the various pollsters, and he said, he’s been doing it for 40 years, and he knows how to read a poll.

    The interesting thing is that he and Kevin Dujan make a lot of the same points, although Dujan does in in a more social fashion.
